Does anyone know how much a re-fret might cost? the high e and b strings oscillate between frets 11-15 if it matters, so about 5 frets are needed. But I don't know about what might be causing it, maybe one fret maybe all.
Any input greatly appreciated

thanks

hit up your local music store. I'm sure they could give you a price or recommend someone.

Better yet try this link

what does a refret job cost?

if your going to re-fret do the whole thing and don't be a cheapskate, but a re-fret is needed when there is huge gouges(we all have are own versions of "huge") in the frets, and what your describing does not sound like it.

@tele made me laugh. all in good fun though

@tele
LMAO! haha that was awesome had me cracking up for a bit
but I did google it, and I was getting all kinds of answers like 400 or 100 or 250. I wanted to know if somebody here could maybe help me out with it.

@ra
there's no 'gouges' but there is the natural indentation in the frets from the strings, I honestly just don't know what is causing it(the noise). It comes through with my tone horribly, very noticeable, its almost like I have two notes ringing at the same time, but one is not a 3rd or a 5th of the other. more like if A and E were ringing together. I am baffled at this. and I hate it.

I don't think its the frets because Ive seen this problem so many times and its usually bridge/saddle/ nut problem. IDK if you got a neckthrough guitar but if it is the frets I'd rather get a new neck.

i don't man I'm sorry. i would more than likely need it in my hands to know for sure(that's even if i could figure it out), but i'm going to back league's guess on bridge/saddle/ nut problem/ and add maybe a single fret problem(popping out, dead stop, ect), but getting a new neck would only cost more even if you don't like your neck now and even got one with frets installed you would still need a fret leveling and step up.

I have a floyd rose trem on the guitar, but I am annoyed with the oscillating effect on the notes. I don't know what to do about it :(

thanks for the input guys

like , RA, i'd have to see/hear ...

my last re-fret was 20 years ago lol , Gibson Jumbos on my 60-something Fender Mustang (that Plank has been through a LOT haha)

IMO
you have a combination-problem = two unrelated 'problems' , one causing "the noise" and the other, the Frets ya noticed whilst trying to figure out the aforementioned sound.

I'd say it'd be a cheap fix, no more than a Bill no less than 25.

but like i said i'd have to hear/see this.

hit a shop or make a vid lol


RAWK!

thanks guys, after a bit more searching on the net for some of the same types of problems(I don't know how to word it) I think it may be the truss rod. i have never had this problem before in the 3 months that I have owned and played it.
I'll try to upload a vid later today and I'll be sure to include some closeups of the frets, which as I found out this morning is now the entire e string being affected. Action doesn't do much to help, as I had cranked it way up and it only moved back the places that it is worse about a half step.
for an example of sound, bar the E and A strings in standard tuning at the 3rd fret and play those. It is very similar to what it sounds like.

Well I was talking to a friend the other day in college and she said she needed her Les Paul refretting too. She said she found someone willing to do it for 150 but we both agreed that sounded like a rip off, especially since hers is an accoustic! She could buy another one!

Anyway her offer might have been a rip off. But in case it wasn't I don't know the value of a dollar, but I think 99 US cents are worth 60p here. And 100p make 1 and I don't know how many cents make a dollar so you can try to use that to figure it out if you want...and if you could make any sense of what I just said!
