Howdy! I recently bought a 50's Lacquer with tweed case new from AMS. When I got it I realized that Fender sprayed the tinted Lacquer over the entire fret board including the frets?!?! I sent Fender an email and have yet to receive a reply asking if this is standard practice? Either way I'm not happy about it... yes it's only a $900 Mexican model but really Fender? It's not my responsibility to get a fret dressing on a new guitar! If they don't make this right I'll fix it and sell every Fender I own. Their quality had been on a steady decline anyway.
