Making the best of wonky frets :: Ibanez ATK300 bass [11.0 lbs]

Here's a bass with the common issue of loose and uneven frets that come with many of the low-cost imported instruments.  Ideally the neck should be properly refretted (including knocking down the fingerboard rise over the body) - or at the very least have the frets glued in place and then leveled and dressed.  But despite not getting the bass to fret as cleanly as I would like, the player was happy and we kept the cost down.
