I used to be a huge fan of GFS. I think their budget line has gone way down hill. That said, if they truly drilled the string holes in the wrong place, I'm sure they'll exchange it unless you bought on clearance, maybe. I think it's more likely the pickguard holes are slightly off so it makes the pickguard sit farther forward than it should, again, slightly. And, my most recent build was a Rock Audio - exceptional quality at that price point. Better routes. Nice weight (not flyweight thought). Only problem is - everyone's on to them and so they are out of most everything. They also tend to have more esoteric/exotic finishes and not as much of the bread and butter - you know, vintage white, butterscotch blonde, that sort of thing. But man, my double-bound black thinline body from them is SWEET.
