Gibson Les Paul Fretboard inlet fell off

Recommended Posts

Dear all, I hope everyone is well.
Just joined this community. I am the owner of a 2016 Les Paul Traditional model purchased new in 2017. Today the 7th fret inlet just fell off. Just like that. Not sure what happened. I recently did use some Dunlop string cleaner regularly. Could that be cause? Or the heat? It can get quite hot in Thailand. Should I just glue it back myself? I purchased the guitar in Australia and I am currently based in Thailand.

Thank you in advance for the suggestions.

It could have something to do with the heat, hard to say.  Something expanded or contracted or it was not fastened well to begin with.  A drop of glue and clamp it back in place - minor repair.
