Hey, Michael, that's gorgeous!  Congratulations!  I agree with Ed - I'd give it a good week to acclimate in the right humidity before taking any action on the frets.  Guitars I've had shipped to me have generally taken about that long to settle.  A custom Carvin electric I ordered, for example, buzzed pretty bad for a few days but corrected itself.

Ed - cannot believe what I'm seeing in the photos! How long have you been doing miniature guitars? How did you get started doing this? Gosh, I wouldn't have a tenth of the patience that you do!

Don't do anything to the frets until you find out if the guitar just needs humidifying. The condition you describe is often caused by the neck drying out.

Things seem to have worked out fine, so far. One issue that concerns me: the fret wire kinda pokes out too far from the fretboard.  If you sliding a barre chord up\down the neck, you could cut your finger.  Can i take a finger nail file and slightly file it down some?
