Unhappy Unpleasant Surprise

I picked up a new RG351DX on ebay today. I got a great deal on it (supposedly a dent and scratch, but I can't find anything). I was surprised that it had a high fret that is REALLY high. This is the first guitar in quite some time that I have found this on. The quality control on the lower end guitars has gotten so much better the last few years that most can but unboxed and played right away. This one will require me to to a leveling on (bummer is that it's the 18th fret so playing at the 17th fret doesn't work, which is the much used key of A). I was curious if anyone has gotten a rotten tomato lately.

Re: Unpleasant Surprise

Is it higher than the others or just popped out of the fret slot a little? If it's popped out a little clamp it down with a little super glue to get it to hold. That should take care of it.

Re: Unpleasant Surprise

No, it's a poor fret dressing. Being a 351 I'm sure the quality control is a bit lax.

Re: Unpleasant Surprise

That's a shame. If you bought it new you should be able to have it addressed under warranty though. I would imagine so anyway.
