So I got my guitar worked on at the shop a few weeks ago, and when I got it back, I noticed that the 15th fret on the low E string is damaged, as well as the string itself.




Sorry the picture is bad, I took it with my cell phone. As you can see, the string has a notch in it, and the fretboard has a small "ditch" thing with striations that match the low E string.
Does anyone know if this will result in more damage over time, or is it ok to just leave it alone.

I don't know how to change the picture size, sorry its so obnoxiously big.

Sigh. I hate poor work. They probably dropped something on it, but, no, it won't get worse over time.

Ok sweet thats what I wanted to hear. I was worried the string would snap and cut my hand off. As long as it plays well I don't really care how it looks.

Guitar repair work.

I'd replace the string, to be safe. You can buy single strings from most stores, or just buy a pack to have.

I got the action lowered, strings changed and a battery replaced in the electric part of it. Is there a way i could get the fretboard fixed?

Not really. Any job wouldn't look very decent and would only make the ding more noticeable. Fretboards get grooves in them the longer that you play, so it isn't a big deal. You should learn how to change your own strings, action, and batteries. The more you know about your instrument, the better you will become at getting the most out of it.
Sincerely, Chad.
