    Tiny Hole in Fretboard - Majesty - To Worry or Get Over It?

    Howdy all, first post here.

    First of all, let me come out and say that I now own 3 EBMM guitars and I absolutely love every one of them. They've all been purchased used, so I still look forward to being the first owner of an EBMM in the future. They are amazing instruments and feel like quality in the hands.

    With that out of the way, I noticed that on a recently purchased Majesty, there is what appears to be a tiny hole on the 15th fret of the A string. I didn't noticed when I first received the guitar, and the owner, of which he is the first and only owner, said he never noticed it either. He has never had any fret work done or anything like that.

    I've circled the hole in red. As I stated, it's right UNDER the A string when holding the guitar correctly. I didn't see it until the light was just right and I was also holding it upright.

    Any thoughts or reasons to be concerned? Any one else seen or experienced this? It also DOES NOT affect playability. Thanks and look forward to hearing some feedback

    Is there anything you could do about it? If there is nothing you can do, it would be best to move on. The guitar will perform just as good. Enjoy all your guitars!!

    Looks like a fret tang may have nicked that on the way in. If it bothered me I might attempt a tiny drop fill of thin Cyanoacrylate (CA), followed with a light scrape and buff, Probably disappear and wont harm anything. Or ignore it...

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies! I wouldn't have noticed it if I didn't happen to catch it at the right angle and right light. Certainly didn't notice it while playing.

    I'll be sure to upload some pictures to the Picture post of the EBMM family.

    It's good to be in the family If only my wallet could agree haha
