I love the mod. You're right. It's the right cost of a "fix" for the cost of the guitar. If this was an expensive guitar, you get a refret by a pro. It's just a $40 guitar that you jive with and have made tons of crazy unique mods to and just want to get it back to a no-buzz playing shape? Go for it. I just find it humorous that someone decided to use his or her 4th post on this site necro a thread over a year old to shit on you for doing it. Might have forgotten which guitar forum they were digging through.
