Hi fellow ukers-

My first post here. I completed my first build a few months ago, its a baritone cutaway with kasha bracing. Sounds sweet and I just can't seem to put it down! I have one fret, I think the 14th or 15th that is rocking back and forth in the slot. Seems to be bent the wrong way. Anyway, what is the best way to repair this: should I remove the fret and set a new one, or glue one end down on the original fret, then press the other end and glue it down?

Personally, I'd just remove that fret and press in a new one. It'll probably save you time and headaches in the long run, The bend going the wrong way could possibly interfere with the height of the fret, and could possibly cause it to buzz.
Just my two cents though.
