IMO the reply seems fine considering how minor the hairline crack is.
It doesn't look like it's a guitar you'll ever be happy with at this point, no matter what the dealer does.
It didn't feel right in the first place and it could well be that a SS is just not right for you (nothing wrong with that, the vintage radius isn't for everyone).
You have the option to return it, do so.
They have no other white ones with rosewood, and that's the one I like. I'll reorder when they have another one. I returned this one. Played great and liked it otherwise, but didn't feel like explaining the defects or taking a bath if I ever wanted to resell.
I’ve never seen or heard of cracked birds before.
Where is the crack? I don't see it.Ooooh now I see the crack. My bad. Yep. Bye bye. Not acceptable. Should never have made it pass the dealer that way.
Are you on the USA? I am wondering why the price is so high.Do what do I do? I quite like the guitar otherwise.
That is messed up. I don't like that answer either.Here's the response I got from the dealer after sending him the pics:
"It happens on them, but if you're not ok with it you can either exchange it for something else or send it back and I'll refund you once its here. I'll likely just re-list it with the lines in the bird inlays for $2900 instead of $3200
FYI, 2900 is the price I paid for the guitar, which was listed at 3200.
Email is a tricky thing, yet I'm not sure I'm thrilled with the response, or what I think is between the lines.
Where is the crack? I don't see it.
OP is in Canada, as mentioned in the first post. Also "Different province" etc.Are you on the USA? I am wondering why the price is so high.
