On my 15th and 17th frets, the bars next to them (I don't have the correct terminology, but its the gold-ish thing that separates the two frets...) they have little knicks in them... cuts if you will.


This affects my playing when I'm cranking a sweet solo and when I bend it messes up the smoothness of the solo.


Sorry for my terminology. Thanks.


EDIT- Wow, I forgot to ask my question...

Would it damage my guitar if I filed down the fret just a bit so that it wasn't a depression compared to the rest of the fret?

The "bars" are the frets.

You should never try to remove a nick by filing one fret.
You need to level them all, so the tops of them are in a line.
Do some research on "fret leveling", "fret crowning", "fret dressing" and "fret polishing".

you might be able to polish it out. but its really not worth it. take it in for a fret dress to a local guitar shop. you will thank yourself. its about $80-120 depending on the guitar. it will play so good.
