Grosh EJ Fretting out

So I got my first Grosh EJ back in August (the natural one below) and have played little else since (until I got another one last month). After about 5 months of playing it at every gig, practice, etc., it started fretting out when I bend on the high E at about the 14th and 15th fret... nowhere else. This was surprising because of the relative youth of the guitar and the 12" radius. The Neck relief looks ok, do you think I just need to do a fret level and crown? I don't mind doing it, but it just seems so soon...

BTW - here is my Grosh Collection! Best guitars on the planet!

Probably needs a slight adjustment in action, maybe neck maybe saddles maybe both? The seasonal change may have had an effect on the guitar, they certainly do to mine. My Grosh is doing the same thing. I may raise the saddles to compensate because the rest of the guitar feels great. I agree, simply amazing guitars!

The Grosh RC is may favorite (been playing strats for 20 years), but my current band plays harder rock and the EJ is just a better fit. To be honest, the EJ is slowly starting to overtake the other two.

Try adjusting the action higher until it doesn't fret out.

If the action becomes very uncomfortable then yes send it to Grosh and have them look at it.

If you play it alot and bend a lot in the 5 months then I think it's fair to have the fret worn out enough to warrant some minor fret work.

It's all relative though depends on how hard you play and how oftern do you change strings.
