Default How bad is this fret wear?

I got this recently and honestly didnít pay attention to this. I was just changing strings and noticed and wanted to ask.

How bad (or not so bad) is this? You are looking at the first 3 frets. I see some wear on the 4th and 5th very little.

I donít notice anything when I play so may itís not a big deal?

No big deal at all until it causes problems.

With a state of the art set up those would likely cause some localized rattling. If they're really not giving you trouble, you might have a treat in for yourself if you have a good tech mill them and set the guitar up.
