Subject: RE: Re-fretting guitars
The problem with fret wire is that it has to be soft enough for the luthier to cut, file, and crown the frets using conventional tools, so this places a constraint on how hard the fretwire can be to start with.

You might want to specify "tall" fretwire for the refret, this would give you a longer period between actual refrets, allowing for more re-dressing of the existing frets.
