Premium line - flaws in the finish?
I just got a Premium 7-string, and I'm not to happy about the craftsmanship of the finish.
It has little spots where the red color is not covering well, and where you see the original color of the top-veneer. Admitted these spots are very small, but since they are on the top, still annoying.
Now I'm in doubt whether or not to return the guitar. With a Prestige I would definitely not accept minor flaws like this, so I was wondering if little imperfections like spots on the finish are considered standard with the Premium line? If so, then I think they are too expensive for what they are.
Have any of you who have Premiums (or seen them in person) had any similar spots, or is the one I got an exception? If the latter is the case it would be worth returning it an getting another one, but if not, I might just get another one that has the same thing just on a different spot.
