    I noticed that one of my trapezoid inlays is high on the high E side, like it’s popped out a fraction but enough to bother me. How is this fixed, what is the cost?...

    Advice? Suggestions?

    Buy some superglue....thin/watery if you can.
    Squeeze a drop into the high corner and hold down with something that is not skin.....done.

    Is it actually loose or just high? If it is loose you can glue it, careful not to make a mess with the CA. Either way may still need sanded down.

    I have the same issue on my 2016 trad. The markers at 5th and 7th frets are lifting. Im waiting to see if they lift further before attempting to glue. It only really gets in the way with bending
