The fret ends on my JO Skyline started sticking my fingers when I run them up the side of the neck. Per another's TB'ers advice, I contacted Lakland (who responded on email quickly) and they said the dry winter weather has been harsh on necks. Sure enough, just dropped if off at Rudy's (Pensa) to get fixed and they are swamped with guitars and basses needing similar fixes and adjustments (two weeks to get it back). Thought I would share that with others who make have noticed that their necks are out of whack. Guess the Fenders aren't reacting as much since the wood is coated and sealed much heavier.
