Ok, after picking up that Charvel and realizing I'm just far more comfortable on really heavy frets than anything else, and furthermore that the frets on my now 20-year-old UV are pretty worn anyway, I dropped her off for a refret at my local luthier's shop (Jim Mouridian, for you Boston guys). I'll be picking her up after Christmas - I was quoted $325 which isn't exactly cheap but is a bit less than what I expected to pay.
That said... My Strat has some pretty visible fretwear and probably never had more than medium wire on it to begin with. Since ir's a finished neck, I understand regrets are a huge pain in the ass and that I'll probably be paying quite a bit more, likely for a neck finish as well since the existing finish is prone to tearing out.
So, is it worth spending that kind of money to refret a maple boarded strat? Or would I be better off slapping a Fender decal on a new Warmoth neck? Sentimental factors clearly apply here - I love this guitar. However, a multiradiu neck with abalone dots would be pretty pimp too.
Man, your phone-typing skills completely eat shit bro.
