Hi guys, haven't posted much before, but I have some questions that I hope you can help me with. So around last fall, I ordered a Warmoth neck to put on a strat. It was a maple neck with an ebony board, and stainless steel frets. The quality was excellent. I finished it myself with tru-oil and installed tuners myself, and also cut my own nut. Much of the info that helped me get through the whole process was found on these boards, so I thank you all. For the past 4 months or so, I haven't played guitar much, and when I picked it up to play a month ago, I realized that the ebony board had shrunk a bit, and the fret ends protrude just a bit. The nut also protrudes a bit. It's not horrible, and I have no trouble with filing down the fret ends. I live in NYC, so there are cold dry winters and hot summers. There's no doubt that it shrunk because of the low humidity during winter. Now my main question is whether or not the ebony will eventually expand itself when the weather gets warmer and more humid. Or would you just go ahead and smooth down the fret ends now? I also do use Fret Doctor, but the low humidity is too much it seems. All comments are appreciated!! Thanks!
