I bought a 1979 Takamine EF340 off ebay and although the guitar sounds beautiful, the frets are not in the condition I'd like. About 5 of them look like they're worn out on the upper 3 strings, frets 2-7. What kind of cost am I looking at to replace these 5?

If you want to have it done by a really good place such as 12th fret in Toronto, somewhere around $200. The cost is mostly for the labour. I actually bought my guitar and had them set it up as well. A little pricey, but definitely recommended if you want to have the job done right.

I would not trust any of the big canadian music stores such as Long & McQuade.

ditto on big music stores - find a qualified luthier or tech.

They managed to screw up a setup on my brother's classical guitar before. That on top of a 3 week turnaround for shoddy work = AVOID.
