    Took off faceplate and a chunk of wood was missing. Bridge pickup needed to be replaced. Had to do a complete fret job. Nuf said.

    If it was purchased new, I would have returned it.

    We love pictures and more detail. What year is it, bought used or brand new? What did you have to replace the pick up?

    is this a "New" CV?? a missing chunk of wood in the route suggests that someone has modded this thing. would love to see pics of this

    What do you mean by that? (not judging, just curious) Normally I would think it means you replaced all the frets.

    Oftentimes 'faceplates' are referred to as 'pickguards.'

    I would return it new or used. Im not paying for a fret job without knowing ahead of time and have it planned. I have a tech that can do it for me but I’d be pissed. If I buy used gear I try to make sure I can reach the person. That’s why I prefer to buy it from the sellers location. Then I can find them

    Well if they ever come back maybe we can get to the bottom of this. Until then, colour me skeptical...

    Just another whiner and complainer with no real evidence or information, we see it all the's probably due to lack of knowledge

    Said he HAD to do a fret job, so it seem it's done. There's no returning, refusing or asking for a refund possible here.

    San Diego Fret Job sounds like a seedy caper starring Jack Nicholson, Eric Roberts, and Telly Savalas.

    Facts and a sane thought process like returning something reduce ones ability to have a whinge in a guitar forum though

    the sooner you learn that

    1. Buy something because you have too much disposable cash and already have plenty
    2. Find the minutest issue with it (often what i call 1st world guitar problems "i found a scratch")
    3. Immediately post about it on a guitar forum like your world is ending

    is the usual prcoess, the easier it will be for everyone :)
