    Hey guys, any idea of the pricing for a grind and polish/crown and polish/fret job?

    A fret dress at a local luthier cost me $125. A fret level and dress at the PTC cost me $225. The PTC was a better deal.

    When you compare the coast of a level/crown/polish to a refret, the refret is generally the better value.

    mixing terms up here, a full fret dress includes leveling, crowning and polishing (and any end work you require)

    And Drew that's not true everywhere, where I live a dress with a setup is 150 dollars, a good quality refret is between 350 and 500 dollars. It's regular responsible maintenance for a good guitar to have the frets dressed before they get to the point that requires refretting.
