Re: help with ibanez rg2570
300 years? Wow, what are those frets made of? Diamonds?
My RG550 is 22 years old, it's never had a re-fret nor even a level/crown. I prefer higher action and so far I've been able to live with the little bit of buzz, but the uneven wear of the frets is starting to make it feel just 'strange', and while the intonation is 'okay', with proper crowning it could be better.
If I level the frets, I'll have to take quite a bit off the top to get them all properly leveled, and since I don't like low, or even medium frets I'll have to get a re-fret soon.
While the taller frets that most people seem to prefer these days give you more 'meat' to file them level while keeping them fairly tall over many years, you'll still have to get a re-fret eventually, especially on a guitar that is played a lot, and/or if you're an aggressive, heavy handed player that likes thick strings.
