Fret problem.

I have a Vintage VECJ100 Series...
And some time ago, my 13th and 14th fret on the high E string died. 0-12 15-21 plays fine, but those 2 arent working... And I found little cracks on the lower side of the fretboard(the side facing down when your playing). Could those be the problem ?

Re: Fret problem.

Get a straightedge and lay it across the tops of the frets to see if they're not level. I'm guessing if your fretboard is cracked, there is a good chance those frets have come loose. Your best option is to have a qualified person repair the board, replace or re-seat those two frets, level the frets.
