I recently ended up with a Korean Squier Jazz for free, more or less. This one is the first Squier I've ever seen that puts the Fender name / proper logo in the highlight position on the headstock ("Squier Series" in tiny script out where you'd normally see, say, "Affinity Series" these days). Pretty sure that's all factory, and maybe it's not all that weird, but I've never seen it in 25 years of gear-buying. Anyway, a previous owner defretted the bass, which has a rosewood board. They actually did a decently clean job - no tearout and the slots are actually looking pretty clean too. The downside: they left roundwounds on the bass for some reason after the conversion, so there are light winding-tracks down the length of the board under all four strings. I have no use whatsoever for a fretless, as-- sorry!-- I absolutely detest the sound of the things. But this thing looks really nice and could make a nice addition to the stable with some new pickups (the existing pickups are essentially contact microphones) and, y'know, frets. I'm wondering if this is a good first opportunity to try fret installing, something I really kinda need to learn to do anyway. I'm sure as heck not going to pay a luthier $150+ to do it on a bass that's almost certainly worth less than $200. But I worry this might be taking on more than I think I'm gonna be chewing. The wound-string wear on the board isn't really THAT deep as to be too worrisome to me personally, but I guess replacing the board altogether is also an option. Not sure if that's a BETTER option than just buying some wire and going for it with the board and cut slots I already have. And sure, I could just replace the neck altogether, I guess, but I'm not totally sure whether I can expect stock J necks to fit the pocket - and I actually really, really like the existing neck profile... to say nothing of the stage-friendly big-Fender logo already there with no further fuss on my part. Suggestions?
