A rather disappointing NGD. Thought I would try a Gretsch Jet Club. Really a very nice budget guitar, and on the first inspection, everything looked fine. But the moment I strummed my first G chord, I could feel something was amiss. Looking closer, I saw this on both sides of the neck. Oh well, it was fun for a few moments. Back to the seller, it goes. By the way, it was triple boxed, so I do not think it happened in shipping.
