yeah, all looks pretty good to me, i dont know if it has any dings or anythin down the bottom tho.

all the lil dots i believe just come from the swirling proessm im not sure of the full reasons tho.

therer are so fog spots on the back (at the top of the trem cavity) buit nothin 2 wory about as far as i can see

On the edge it has a little damage in the clear lacque (???dunno the english word for it) which was refinished a little amateur but....well.....i mean where the lacque is a bit darker.

If I realy hate it, i could remove the new lacquer (aceton works fine as my fingers already know depending on which kind of lacquer it is) and ask a proffesional guitar builder here in the area.

those little spots are where there was specks of dust or something else stuck to the wood. It happens when you dont clean somethign properly before finishing(or theres somethign you just dont see or cant get off.

Actually they're from the "water" [or whatever] droplets that remain on anything you pull out of the bathtub

I could add, this is something you ONLY see on ATD's, not on MKR's [even though they have their own "coagulated" look] or on any Herc I've seen [but admitedly it's not that many]. If you hang it by the neck you should also see drip trails where the drop ran down, or even creeped down the body when it was hung to dry.

Kind of reminds me of a nebula - stars being born in a swirling cloud of gas and dust. I love astronomy so I think these bubles look kinda cool.
