This Warwick Thumb bass had been previously defretted and the current owner wanted to have it refretted with Warwick brass frets. I has to order the frets from Germany but in a stroke of good fortune it turned out thy the slots were filled with a soft putty which could be removed with a fret slot cleaning scraper. It required a little fretboard leveling but the new frets went in without a hitch and it plays beautifully.
