Leveled frets

I finally got my guitar back from the Luthiers today after almost three weeks. I have an Art 100 which allthough a fairly cheap guitar used to play very nice, low action. But for the last year I havent been able to really play it due to fret buzz. I tried everything I could. I took it back to the shop and they really couldnt do alot with it. So I decided to take it to a local guitar repair guy who I had never heard of. He set the relief in the neck and leveled all the frets and I cant believe the difference, plays like a new guitar again. I had almost given up hope and was actually considering a very pricey replacement. Glad I went to him.

Yes it is. I hated the thought of getting rid of it.
