        Get a humidifier. Frets stick out more when wood shrinks due to dry winter air.




        lol. Yeah because the whole world lives in a dry climate during the winter.

        It's not that I don't think I could file them down. I was just hoping there would be an easier way.



        I'm gonna try a humidifier for now.




        lol.

        Winter is the ideal time to file fret ends, that way you don't have to worry all year round.



        Since it is rosewood, you could also try a little fret doctor if the board is dried out that would help a little in the wood expansion. But the low temps and low humidity is primary cause.




        Yeah, because what you really want is to soften up the wood. lol.

        If it it's rosswood use some lemmon oil on it. Just lay the guitar flat and rub enough on with your finger so you can see a nice layer. Do it again in about 20 min. It will not take up more than it needs.

        Then just wipe it down and string her up. Day or two they will be gone.




        lol.

        There you go. If that doesn't work, just jump into a hot tub with the guitar.

            The proper way to fix your issue is to have the fret ends filed down. Humidifiers are great if you don't mind this becoming a recurring issue; they only hide the issue until the board dries out again.
