Hi people. I need your advice:
I have a '89 NT6 Thumb and I am wondering of replacing the frets. Now they're quite worn out and smooth (I think they had even been filed someday). I guess that replacing them with frewsh ones I will improve in sound and playability. Don't you think?
I'm thinking to replace the original electronic of my Thumb NT6 (too much hiss...). Anyone experienced 3-band Bartolini NTMB-918F?

Tx for your help.
