Default Sharp Fret Ends

Hello fellow members.

I have four guitars.
Music room is constant 45 - 55 RH

One guitar has developed very sharp ends. Ebony fretboard.

Why just one guitar ?

Do all 4 have ebony fretboards? Are all fretboards the same width?

Regardless, once filed, they won't ever stick out again.

Hi Daniel, how long as this guitar been in your music room? Any chance it came from an environment that was more humid that your room?

Is the guitar new? If so, I'd guess that the ebony wasn't dry.

Default Sharp Frets

I have had the guitar for over a year. It was built in 2016.

All the other guitars are also ebony.

I will have the frets filed and see what happens in the coming months.
