I just bought an SX bass and everything is good about it except one fret high on the neck - the 19th or so. It's not fully seated and the ends are raised up a bit. I can fit my fingernail under the middle of the fret. I tried to hammer it in but it's not budging. What should I do? I could take it to a repair shop but is there something I could do to fix it?
A "cener-punch' under the "tang" to start it....work it back with a stout kinfe..or a chisel.....BE CAREFUL!...bend the ends down a tad with needle-nose pliers.....tap back in carefullly....if too loose use some crazy-glue to hold it back in.Put the fret back in...backwards from before to get better bite on it.
