Thanks for that info. I'll take your advice, since you know a lot more than I do about these things. I'll just smooth it out and hope it stops happening after I "burnish" the wood from excessive playing, after a while. (like an old, worn-in handrail on stairsteps)

A few little splinters/chips came out of the neck, when the grain raised the first time. I can feel the little divots when I play - it's not that bad, but I'd like to fill them in with something and stop this from happening.
