    I think I'd be inclined to see if they'd give me a bit of a rebate and keep it. I like that Agave blue.

    Too bad its a maple fretboard otherwise, you could send it to me, I'd give you $340 for it. ;)

    Found out what did it. The case it came with had a screw sticking through the interior and from it being jumbled around during shipping it must have impacted the guitar. I found the screw because I found flakes near that spot in the case. I took it to my Guitar Center and we worked everything out. They are gonna fix it no charge so I decided to keep it :)

    Thank! Yeah they still owned up to it saying it was the companies fault for using that case and not checking it before hand since it was beat up.

    Awesome!
    If you are lucky, you will just be able to make out the repair so you can tell banes during set breaks...

    I will post a NGD thread when it comes back. I didn't think an actual thread with nice pictures was needed since I didn't know if I was gonna keep it or not. I just didn't want a gaping hole in the side of the guitar :)

    I'm fine getting chips and dings over the years of play. I just didn't want it from a lame reason such as packing it in a crappy hardshell case from the store I purchased it from.

    I'd try to get some money back .. but other than that, I wouldn't give a ****. It's just cosmetic and tbh, I like my guitars being slightly damaged .. gives us something in common :D
