    Hey all
    Does the rollover/chamfer on the upper horn of this body look weird to you? Should it be more uniform?

    I think there is a bump to the right of the strap button that didn't get sanded completely. The chamfer looks wider there compared to the rest of the horn and the back side edge as well.

    My guess is the cute girl from finishing walked by about the time the man using the palm sander was finishing the final sanding and he let it set a little too long on that spot as he admired her leaving his department.

    No one hotfooting past the stage from the dancefloor or the first through fifteenth row of your big concert tour is going to give a RAT"S A$$.

    Does the guitar, in question, play worth a damn? That's really where the rubber meets the road.

    Just have fun.:D

    Should it be more uniform? Yes, it should, that looks strange and likely a sanding error, but if she plays well so be it. There isn't a good way to correct it, so just roll with it.

    so the gloss on the first picture is the good one?
    i thought that when it would be a guitar with a worn look the sanding would have been rougher and therefore the different rollover

    If it's Chinese, it sucks!
    If it's Murican, that's signs of hand crafted mojo.
