Anyone Refret a JS1000?

A friend of mine has a JS1000BP for sale. It is almost exactly like the one that I used to have, Lo Pro Edge, locking studs, etc.. His guitar is in better shape than mine was, no dents or scratches.

The frets are fairly worn in a couple of spots though. Since the frets are already tiny, I was thinking that maybe I should just refret it instead of trying to dress them. I love the guitar, but hate the tiny frets anyway........

Anyone done this yet?

If you like, I can put you in touch with a guy who used to build Joe's guitars and see if he'll do it for you. That way it's authentic. Just send me a PM and let me know.

There's no secrets Gary does most of Joes work. At least it's not that expensive a ship from the islands.

Re: Anyone Refret a JS1000?

Right on, thank you guys! I've done a few, but not enough to tackle this guitar. I want it to stay super nice.
I emailed them. If I don't hear back in a couple of days, I'll give them a call.

Do you think he would want the whole guitar or just the neck? It would be great to have a full pro setup done on it, but shipping for the whole guitar would run me about $250 there and back. Not sure I can afford that.
