Theres a fret on my RR3 that is noticeably higher than the others, but there is no gap from the fretboard to the fret, is this a seating problem or do I need to polish/ file? Thanks?

where is the fret located? I can't imagine it being something that was intended, either something is stuck beneath the fret or the fret is really just that big. The easy option is probably to file away, but i have no experience in that whatsoever o.o

I'd wait for more responses before pulling a file out and doing unnecessary damage

Its near the 18th fret or so

Hmmm, if no one else responds I'd take it to a guitar shop and see what they say, it could just be a quick and easy file and problem solved.

I feel that if you bought a guitar from whatever company prior to 2010 they used to have a lot more mistakes like this, these days I think it's a lot, lot more rarer. Like one of my guitars (+$800) came with two black paint marks just slightly above the bridge - the guitar body is white.

It could've been caused by what is more often called the Gibson 'hump', where the wood tends to expand and contract the most at the neck joint, which causes the fretboard to belly up slightly.

This is what I was thinking when he said 18th fret.

You can do it yourself with fret rockers, file and crowning file, just go easy and take it slowly, remember, you can always take away more material from the fret but can't put it back on if you file too much away.

It happens on many brands of guitars, its just that Gibson Les Pauls are such popular instruments that it gets named after them. Nearly every acoustic guitar that's ever been built after 20 years or so does it too and for the same reason.
