indentations - indentations in the Universe
I am a first time Universe 777PBK owner.
Smooth indentations have developed in the fretwire directly under the steel (non-wound) strings from frets 1 way up into the 20s. I trust my ear and it sounds just as fantastic now as it did when I first piloted it. Actually it sounds much better since I worked closely with most setup parameters except for truss rod adjustment.
The playability has not noticably degraded in any way. However, I'm concerned about entropy. The 'indentations' are noticable under close inspection by playing light about the frets. I can't fathom going thru the time/dollars/temporary neck loss of getting a new neck within the next few years.
Secondly, there is a slight chip at the 'leg saddle?'
After browsing the wealth of info. here at Jemsite I don't really have high hopes of a DIY for this slight problem. Again, here I'm concerned of entropy.
Please help and thanks for being here.
