Fender Guitar

What is the process for refretting/replacing frets on a guitar?

I was wondering what is the process for refretting/replacing frets on an electric guitar? My old Fender guitar needs new frets so it plays properly. The frets have indentions from the strings. When I take my guitar to an expert, will they replace the frets while the neck is connected to the body or do I need to remove the neck first?

They might take it off for convenience at some point, but you certainly don't need to do it beforehand. They will need to have it put together at some points (that's the only way to tell what shape it takes under string tension), so you can't just hang onto the body. It's not essential to take it apart at all - acoustics and glued-in necks are refretted all the time.

Refretting procedures vary, with the two main methods being the old way of pressing in the frets and a newer method where they are embedded in epoxy.
