    *Update*

    Just picked up the guitar from Mike Koontz guitar repair in Ferndale, Michigan. It's magic!

    There's a couple little visual spots if you look in the right light but it's been sanded and buffed to perfection. He told me he wasn't going to be able to perfectly match color but shape would be perfect, and he did not disappoint.

    (The little white spots in the 2nd photo are a reflection)

    Hopefully, you paid via credit card.

    What I'd do is return the guitar to the Seller, for a refund, then contact my credit card company and tell them that the item was returned.

    Good luck! And next time, buy local! :rolleyes:
