J45 nut

Yes, almost all the time with Gibson's in particular.  Very easy fix.  Loosen and remove the strings from the nut slot and simply (but carefully) sand the sharp edges of the nut over to round them a bit with 800 grit or higher automotive sand paper (body finishing).  I usually tape off the fretboard at the first fret just to be safe.  I then finish it off smooth with 1200 - 1500 grit.   2000 grit + will polish it up nicely if  you want to take the extra step. (I do)

As usual, the customer is finishing Gibson's work that  should have been completed at the factory before the guitar left.  😐
