I sat next to a nun on the bus once, she said hi

ya can do that when ya have more money than to know what to do with.. seems kinda pointless to me unless your frets really have worn away THAT much,but i doubt they could in a couple of months.

I think it was because he liked his frets a certain way. Tall and skinny, that it was more accurate for intonation, also he was pretty rough on them and this was during when they were touring. Anyways I highly doubt you'll need to ever refret a guitar, maybe once every 15-20 years if it lasts you that long.

I've never heard of anyone refreting a guitar more than once. Frets should last you a good 20 years unless you are HEAVILY playing them all the time. And by that time, you prolly bought another guitar.

You can only refret so many times before the slots in the fretboard would be to wide to be of any use. So if he did it 2 times a year wouldnt take long before the guitar would need to be retired, a new neck or fretboard. How long frets last is up to the player. A new guitar with the soft metal they use in guitars now I can waste the frets in a few weeks. My 83 MIA fender took 10 years to tear em up. Now I use stainless so not really an issue anymore.
