    So i ordered a surf green tele off a local luthier a little while ago, I'm converting it to an Esquire, anyway, it turned up, and whilst the body and hardware were beautiful, the neck had several problems, these included:

    - Noticeable dark pitting and nasty-feeling holes in the fretboard and the truss rod-adjustment hole
    - Uneven side fret markers at the 12th fret (looked proper wonky)
    - Wonky curve above the nut.

    I was gonna send it back, but after a couple of very friendly and apologetic emails, he sent me a new neck free of charge, AND IT'S A BEAUT!

    Maybe he just dropped the ball on that particular day!
