Issues with brand new rg3570z

hey guys, i was wondering if i could get some insight from the knowledgeable community here.

i just recently purchased a rg3570z, i got it and played it and loved it. however! there are some imperfections on the guitar.

on the back of the neck when you rub your hand their are quite a few very small "bumps" i guess you could call them. finish flaws (i would guess) that u can feel in some spots.

also in the holes for the neck joint bolts it looks like the finish is pretty marred up for whatever reason. its no finish on the outside of the guitar its just pretty bad inside.

I wonder, are those issues pretty common? should i expect more from ibanez's high end guitars? i have the option to return it and try again or take 10% off my purchase price.

any advice/opinions would be really appreciated.

thanks guys

Well, i wouldn't think there should be any neck imperfections on a guitar that high-end.. The finish in the neck bolt joint coiuld just be from normal wear or the neck being set badly. I'd return it and try again.

You'll get a few little dimples on any neck... especially the ones with a 'satin' finish. Get some 0000 steel wool and lightly buff it out with that. No biggie.
They NEVER really finish the inside of the neck bold recesses... again, not a big deal, just no real need to do it.
