1 DaveH 7 months ago My '64 Strat is showing substantial fret wear- put on by me back when I was gigging it every night for several years- and I'm debating with myself about getting it refretted. Not likely to get gigged much,if at all,because it's all original (except for one rewound pickup) and far too valuable to take near any of the dives I usually play at. But it doesn't play very well and I'm wondering whether a refret will compromise the collectability factor,even though it would play and sound a lot better.So what does the readership think.Would it lose too much value? BTW the front looks good,the back is pretty well relic-ed. Here's a pic.
