can be some frets look flat, dented or worn. especially around the 12th.

if u're getting dead frets, buzzing or having intonation problems at those frets.

sometimes $20 a fret or $150+ for a whole board.

Depends on how you play your guitar. Some have a real light touch, me I tend to strangle a fret board. And the quality and hardness of fret wire has been going down. My 83 USA strat went 10 years before It needed fret put in it. My 1 year old epi les paul went about 2 months. And a cheap strat copy I picked up on a trip to asia had grooves worn in the frets after 10 days. You can look and see if the frets have dents in em from vibrato. My solution was to use stainless replacement frets. Now the fret wear grooves in the strings not the other way around. But it only costs me about 10 bucks in materials as I learned how to replace frets myself. The local guitar store that offers that service does really poor work. And the tools to do the job cost the same as paying for a fret job.
