let's make this clear, there is no 55 point inspection from sweetwater unless you include the 25 points that are acoustic only and have nothing to do with an electric. It's deceiving and deceitful, and they know it.

That is good to know so I have the correct expectations.

They are all going to have pimples unless they find a PPE coat that sprays smooth, but I believe they changed paint shops because there was no hint of chrome haze on any of them.

That is surprising, I guess I don't really expect them to do an amazing inspection in reality... but pasting that all over their site if it's not a real thing that sucks. What I expect is them to open the box and check nothing is messed up. I can also imagine on a big operation like that to be hard to maintain standard among many techs. So If they opened the box and made sure the neck is not messed up, the paint is not chipped, it tunes and makes sounds I guess I am happy. Other dealers would just ship me the box even if the pickups are not making sounds.

Re: Ibanez JS1CR or PIA Envy green

Don't confuse warehouses with dealers. Dealers have more invested in their inventory, check it better, usually set it up, and are far more concerned about the customer wanting to keep it than MF, AMS, or any of the other operations where they just push boxes out the door. Sweetwater isn't what they used to be, but if you need the no interest financing, there are worst options.
