You don't have to worry about the frets shrinking. They aren't really porous enough to worry about. It's all about the fretboard shrinking or expanding - and it's not really going to affect things if it expands over the ends of the frets, because it's not like the bridge and nut expand either.

Basically, the wood bits expand or contract just a bit based on weather; humidity, temperature, all that. When the weather warms up, at least to a stabilisation point, your fretboard will expand again, and probably over the ends of the frets. Then you don't have a problem. But if you want to wait until then to avoid cutting yourself on the frets, then it's a matter of filing away the fret sprout, or getting someone else to do it for you.


k, I will file them...nuff said...end of thread...To those who helped me, thank you.

I will look at this thread a year (or perhaps a week) from now and be embarassed. Im a noob. Peace
