and the neck hit the edge of a cabinet. its mostly fine as far as i can see.. no cosmetic damage.

when i was playing it later i found the string above the 4th fret of the A string was flattened so i bent the string away and found there was an indent on the fret where the string flattend against, and the main force of the blow probably landed.

so i changed the strings, and now when i play that fret i get bad fret buzz because the string is lower and in the indent.

is there a cheap way to fix this? or will i need a new fret

i have an epiphone les paul custom.

Sorry to hear that bro. I would take it to a shop and get them too look at it and set it up for you, they may be able to fix it with more ease.

it might be about $20 for a fret redress. and buy a better stand.

It's worth the money to buy a high quality stand.

you might be able to raise that specific string off the nut. the same thing happened to me except the weight of the guitar when it fell over went onto the nut and pushed the string slightly into the plastic. so i took off the string and used a really small piece of paper to raise it just slightly so that fret buzz was at a minimum. its still a tiny bit there, but with no real sacrifice in sound or action. you can "colour" in the piece of paper with some graphite to reduce friction 2..

i know it sounds a bit silly, but its worth a shot if it means you dont have to get it refretted, especially since its quite a nice guitar.

Other things to consider would be a wallhanger or even better, a hardshell case to put the guitar back in when you're not playing.

i have my guitar facing into the room next to my bed, without thinking, i pulled my mattress out to make my bed and knocked the guitar (still in the stand) over. so its my own fault *sigh* im going to take it to the local guitar shop see what they can do.
