Sometimes nothin's easy. I bought a very nice 2000 Newport Pro on Reverb for a good price. The described "slight fret ware" turned out to be significant - frets 2 through 12 are significantly flattened, and frets 5 through 9 are shockingly dished under the G string (someone must be selling wound Gs coated in diamond dust). It's beyond leveling and recrowning, unless I want really flat frets, and especially if I want to preserve the fret pips in the neck binding. So my question is: about how much will a refret by a good luthier cost?
Sugartune posted a topic in For Sale - Wanted to Buy - PIF - eBay & Other PSAsOh my Korina goodness. Love the tort binding on these. Between this and the Elliott Easton Gretsch, I'm really wishing I had stuck with law school Serial looks missing, or very faint. Maybe it's just photoshop masked. https://reverb.com/item/5892984-hamer-koriina-newport-2005-vintage-natural
No affiliation... The seller doesn't know quite what it is, or how to read Hamer serial numbers, but the guitar itself looks in fine shape. I'd guess it was bought it new in 2008. ttps://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/brunswick-east/guitars-amps/rare-semi-hollowbody/1143853026
