I have never changed the frets on any of my guitars - including ones from the 80's that I have purchased new. I supposed it depends on a number of factors, so YMMV. Good luck on your search!Hi,
How often do you change frets for your RG? (I changed frets for my stratocaster and it was very pricey.)
I am now looking for a used 80/90s RG550, but might buy a new one just to make sure I get 100% new frets.
