hey guys, right now im learning a song with lots of bends and vibratos, i play it a ton every day and im beggining to worry that it may be wearing down the frets, should i worry about this? or will it not effect the frets much. Whats the general life span? thanks, its an ibanez RGT42DX
a rgt42dx is high quality, so i think really don´t worry
when you have the guitar for like 4 or 5 years, you should be worried
but just beggining with the guitar, no

Well you can either not play and not wear the frets or play and wear them. But really fret wear is not something that usually occurs quickly unless you have extremely muscled hands and just pound the strings into the frets.
Do you use a BR-600?

Nope. Frets wear as you play, regardless of old or new strings. No sense in worrying about it. Play as hard as you like. Frets last for years.
