I have no idea... I sent mine in for them to take a closer look. Even though they're confirmed stainless.
I highly recommend you calling Carvin and speak with your sales person. It maybe possible that they may have received a bad batch of fret wire, who knows. To my understanding SS Frets are indestructible and techs (google search) complain about their tools being damaged by them.
I'm wondering if others have this issue and have not noticed it, say for guitars built between 2011-2012. When was yours built?
