Hello, Im having this issues with my skyline: Frets have worn very fast. I have begun to have problems buzzing here and there, that had lead me to add relief and raise my action. The problem is that the tone changed noticeably. I feel that the neck of mine is very soft and absorbs some of the attack of the E and B strings. And always Recently... a DEAD spot appeared on the 9th fret of the G string. Do all the skylines have graphite reinforcements? Or did the early production run, have none? Well the thing is this. Shoud I sell it and get a new one with a maple fb (I want more attack and clarity/presence) or keep mine and just buy a new neck. (a new neck is $300) I was also thinking on going for a Deluxe model instead. (Mine is a standard of the first run of Skylines) Strings are not the issue. I just put a new set of Smith rock masters.
