Rough neck on 70v

Hi just bought a secondhand 70 v advertised as new, which it is on every way,a receipt to prove a fret level and setup.
The guitar is set very low...too low for me anyway, buzzing if attacked snuggling less than super gentle.
Anyways ... Whilst looking over the guitar I noticed the top of the walnut binding to the fretboard is rough and has easily visible dings/grooves... Not noticeable when playing.
It seems odd that it would come out of the factory like this, but the guitar is new, has a new date even, and I looked up the luthier who did the setup and he had a stellar reputation.
Any ideas...?
This is my second ibanez my first is a rg 470 in a color called ice I think.
Cheers cliff
