As a first time guitar owner-and it is a used instrument but in like new condition when I got it 2 months ago, I have what may be a dilema. I recently upgraded the plastic nut to a bone one-okay immediate improvement in resonance and sustain of the instrument.
But today when I was looking "down the neck" (from the body looking TOWARD the peghead) I noticed that the fretboard appears to "drop off" substancially on the top E string side from the 2nd and 1st frets. the rest of the fretboard looks okay and nice and "level radiused" (Have a Gibson that has a 20 degree radiused fretboard), but these 2 frets on the high E string seem to have a substancial "drop". Is this normal on acoustic guitars? Don't have any player friends that I can ask close by, and the nearest music store is 14 miles away.
