Just received a black w/binding T style XGP body from Guitarfetish. Passing on what I see as I progress. I like the packaging, well done box in a box with plenty of bubble wrap. Rates a 10 The finish has micro scratches everywhere. I'm sure these can be buffed out. There are several circular "bumps" about the size of an eraser head. Rates a 5 There is one area of the binding on the back where the finish is uneven. Rates a 9 The neck pocket is flawless. Rates a 10 The website states that 1/4" string ferrules are recommended. They don't seem to fit though. 5/16 ferrules seem to fit better. Rates a 1 Any questions?
