So I just attempted a partial re-fret, As I suspected there was no trouble yanking the frets out but it turned out to be more work to do a partial refret than replacing all of them. All the frets ended up being different height/un-even due to not bending them enough (Don't own a fret bender), not cleaning out the slots enough thus the frets sat tall. SO... I have to do it all over again. This time I'm going use a saw to cut the slots clean, properly cut the tang as to hang over the binding and not dig in to it. Ah well, learning curve i guess.
