There is a really great tech in my area. He does the best work of anyone anywhere near here. He does fret work with a plek machine and can frets much more level than almost all manufacturers. I had him redo a 70s Gibson Gospel a few years ago. His work is impeccable. (His name is Ian Weston, he's in Ottawa, Canada) I've played the Gretsch quite a bit over the past few years and the fret wear was getting noticeable. I figured if I was going to get it done, I'd get it done by this guy even though it cost double what a refret would normally cost. But the stainless steel frets feel great and will never wear again. Though I did this fully aware that it is still a 5120 not a 6120 and I was probably putting more than I should into it. I got a compton bridge at the same time so he could set it up with a proper bridge. I had him pin the bridge as well, and sand it to fit the body contour. I also ordered the reverend audio soft spring for the bigsby, and that makes the bigsby actually worth using with 11 gauge strings. I'd already upgraded the pickups to the TV Jones classics a few years ago. The guitar feels great! Though I'm starting to like thicker necks more, I recently got a PRS SE and Yamaha 335 copy with quite thick necks.
