    Not sure about a complete re-fret, but a level/crown/setup cost me $130. I would guess somewhere about double that. I've heard that if it's done properly there should be no change to the fretboard.
    Honey, I'm spending money on guitars or women, ... your choice.

    I had my Buscarino refretted about 17 yrs ago, it was $90 and was awesome when it was done, then someone stole it out of my van and it's gone...... I sure do miss that guitar..........

    Red face Fret work

    I have no idea what it could cost, but I know the folks at the link I have included could do it and give you an estimate before they do the work. I live three and a half hours from Columbus, OH, but it was worth the drive to have them work on my Taylor 810, my 73 Strat, and a newer Les Paul. They are the "factory authorized repair shop" for Taylor closest to my home in WV. They have photos and news clippings on the wall of some more famous artists for whom they have done work. Mr. Davis advised against re-fretting the strat because he said it was a very vintage instrument. They said if I didn't play it that often, I should probably leave it in its current, well kept condition without alteration. I really felt these folks treated me right and I believe they are that way with all their customers.
