    i am trying to repair my old bass and in addition to clamping the neck back together(don't ask), i realized the frets smell like A$$! well they seem to be corroded so i need to find new fret wire...so does anybody know what i need to do to refret it and where do i get more fret wire?
    sorry this bass is really cheap and probably isn't worth the effort in many of your eyes but i really like it! :oops:)

    Stewart-McDonald sells fretwire of various gauges.

    I'm going to move this to setup now.

  3. If you really like this bass and still want to play it regularly, you should have the fret job done by a professional. There are lots of details and difficult techniques used in fret replacement and an amateur is neither equipped with the tools or the knowledge to do a good job themselves.
