Is there any way? Do I just take it down to my local guitar shop and ask them to do it? Or is there somthing I should be already doing to prevent my frets from wearing down?
As after about 1 month of hard playing I can already see the 24th fret on E-string is flattening off, and I know this will happen to other frets just slower.

Thanks

you only need to change your frets after YEARS of playing, they only need it when they have been worn down considerably, they are supposed to flatten off a bit

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Yup, most frets are flat like that, from the final stages of neck production where they flatten out the frets so that when it is set to low action it doesn't buzz. You are just now noticing it. :P No big deal.

And you are supposed to re-crown your frets (check the frets for flatness) every few years, and full out replace them every 8-10 years I think. I may be wrong....

Yeah you only replace your frets when they start to get grooves in them and it is affecting the setup and playability which will take years and years

X2, trust me threadstarter, you don't want real sharp frets. Replacing them is called refretting and you would probably go to a luthier rather than a local guitar shop.

Fret replacement is a specialist job using special tools; you can even damage the fingerboard taking the frets out yourself.
In most cases fret dressing/stoning is all that is needed which is a much better option.
My advice don't try it yourself.
