Splitting tbird fretwire!


Recommended Posts

Recently bought a new Epiphone Thunderbird pro bass.

I've noticed that the fret/fret wire looks like its splitting on most of the frets. Not sure why, I've heard various explanations...coating on the fret wire? or nickel strings rubbing against nickel fret wire?

I've still got the factory strings on since I got the bass.

I'm not sure if its a fault in the fret wire material.

comments advice greatly needed.
