fret wear

Long story short : My B string has created like a tiny ''rut'' on my 5th fret and this makes my B string sounds strange because it gets stuck in that rut, like it's a sitar string or something.

Is replacing the fret altogether the only solution in this case ?

you could get a small file and level all the frets. that's what I do and it works great, but you have to know what you're doing.

something like this, but with all the frets, to get them level.
