Is there something you wish you never done to a bass. I never had one of these times but my dad did. My dad (I'm 14) had 2 74 precisions. the first one he refinished, the second one he pulled the frets and didn't like the tone, then had them put back in, but it didn't sound the same, but that didn't matter because he still wanted a fretless, So he bought a cheap fretless neck and also didn't like that either. Now he learned his lesson, and never touched a basses frets, finish or anything!
