    Hallo guys:
    as obvious,I need to change the frets of my'78 J bass.....(I can't figure how amazingly it will sound with new frets on,considering that is already HOUGE....:eek: :eek: :eek: )
    Ok this is my need to know:
    is it ok that to install new frets,my luthiers take away the transparent vintage finish from neck and fingerboard,and then obviously recover them with a new identical(They say)transparent finish?

    What kind of troubles could this bring?

    As always your opinion,experience,ideas are very welcome;)
