Fretwire wear on UV777PBK - mutation management

Is it just mine or .. the fretwire on my Universe is really starting to wear with indentations. Honestly I don't really understand what it means. I'm not overcriticising, I love my UV.

I'm tempted to do crowning and leveling. Of course .. I have no idea how to do that yet. I'm eager to learn and .. well cringe at the thought of removing the neck and sending it to .. Japan? If that option is even available.

I'm searching the forums too, just wanted to mention it.

Happy New Year,

Fretwire wear on UV777PBK

any competent luthier or guitar tech can do frets for you. *It'll probably be $2-300. *
There's no need to send it back to Japan <shudder>.
