Hi i bought flying v in alpine white, it came with a stain on the back of the body, the store says they received like this and might be caused due the protect case.
It was the lastmodel they have and i really want this colour
The stain is even hardly to see, and it's not apreciatable on photos

It's all over the left side, the thing on the right outside the box its just a thing from camera

It's not like a yellowy stain that might cause the case, its darker, as if it is discolored, like if you left a adhesive tape for a period and then take it off
I have tried to clean it just with a wet cloth
overall its a good guitar but i'm afraid the paint go worse
Is this a typical thing on white models and the range of quality?

hard to see it in your picture though

I've seen people post over the years about their white guitars even picking up stain from their dark t-shirts they're wearing.
and it will probably go yellow over the years too., that's the problem with a white guitar.

I have a white Flying V as well and they just get yellowish over time, get worn, etc. Honestly, unless it really bothers you, I wouldn't worry about it.

I wasn't able to see it in the picture.

Since it's a 2017 I would think the stain might be superficial. You can try to polish it out with some nitro friendly polish. Otherwise, I agree with Michael, unless it bothers you, I would let it go.
