    There's no way to tell, however, it usually stays put.

            Yes it's a new guitar, but I was planning to bring the guitar to a tech next week for a pick-up swap anyway, so I will let him repair this for me.

            If this is an easy fix, it's not worth sending the guitar back to the dealer/distributor, etc.

            Like cougar said, there's no way to tell. If it's a good tech he should be able to do something to get you a semi permanent solution. Like I said there's plenty of stewmac articles covering the benefits of super-glue-ing stock frets. I've never had to glue frets, but I've had issues with snapping a nut and then not having the custom bone nut stay in place. I'm sure if he's a tech who's been around the block for a few years he should know what he's doing and be able to suggest something more competently than I could.



            Good luck bud...keep us posted.

              just a quick Update:

              I just got my guitar back from the tech.
              The fret is repaired, he filled the tiny gap with superglue so the fret will stay put and then leveled the fret, so there is not buzzing.
              So, all is good now!

              Also: the guitar sounds great with the new PUs!!!
