New RG1570GN fret problem

I just received a new RG1570GN from musicians I have noticed that the b string starts to buzz quite a bit at the 18th fret and get worse to almost completely choking at the 21st fret and there is no problem at all on the 23rd fret. The G string is a little better on those frets. The high e string has no buzz except that when I bend the string at the 21st fret it completely kills the note. This was a special order from musicianfriend I paid $529.00 since they don't carry this model in stock. Should I expect or Ibanez to repair this or should I just suck it up and find someone locally to repair this. If I find someone local to do the work what kind of price should I expect to pay to get this fixed?

Thanks for any advice.

It's obviously got some fret issues, send it in and have it handled under warranty.
