Agreed on the fret sprout - it can happen to just about any fretted instrument. I've got a touch of it on my very new Am Std. P bass. It has happened since the weather got cold and dry around here. Not bad, but I can feel it. Other than that, I found the fretwork to be just about perfect.
It's too bad every manufacturer can't do what warwick does with their frets - they don't go all the way to the edge, so (as I understand it) their necks are virtually immune to fret sprout.
