Just bought a new Les Paul Standard 50s with a AAA rated top. Love the guitar from far away, but I am not sure how to interpret the QC issues - is it something I should keep and accept or try to exchange for another one? I spoke to the dealer and they offered either an exchange or a partial refund (not sure how much) - I'm just afraid that the exchanged one won't be much better.
There's unpolished varnish by the fretboard on the top, some leftover glue/filling compound underneath the varnish underneath the fretboard... Your thoughts?
