I am getting this guitar done as I write this.Of course it'll take a week or so . Getting stainless steel frets. Did I do the right thing? This guitar is only 3 years old but I play it constantly!! thanks.

I had a hard time finding someone to do SS frets here near Allentown PA and had to go with EVO.

Stainless frets are harder shinier any longer wearing, however, tonal differences are noted between nickle silver frets and stainless frets
