Never experienced something like that on my Les Pauls, would you consider this for a recrown or it is normal and I don’t have to worry?

    I don’t have heavy hands and the “problem” is only on 3 frets, under the G string of 5, 6, 7 frets.

    It's nothing to worry about.

    Guitars have minor frets? :eek: I've only been playing the major frets.

    No wonder my playing sucks....:(

    The frets look OK to me.
    Inconsequential wear.

    ok
    Happens. Years from now, you'll be able to tell when you need to re-crown them.

    I didn't see any fret wear.
    They look practically new.
    6-10 hrs a week should not present much wear at all, especially with a light touch.

    That's very minor. You won't need to dress them until they start fretting out badly (buzzing).
