I just received my LP Traditional light burst. I love the finish and the top has good flame to it. I have seen tops with more prominent flame, but I really like the top on this one. But I digress, my question is about the binding on the neck. Mine does not look quite as clean as I would expect. There are several marks on the top of the binding where it looks like the cutting tool dug in a little and the binding on the fret ends could be more consistent. You have to really be looking to see these "flaws", is this normal? This is the third LP I have owned; a 97 Classic and a 95 special. and I don't remeber any flaws in the neck binding on either. However, my eye may be a little more discriminating now that Les Pauls have doubled in price. I really like the way this guitar looks and it sounds great, but keep going back and forth on wether to return it or not. MF has already given me a 15% discount, but I almost feel like even after the discount this guitar is too expensive to accept anything less than perfection. I would really appreciate some opinions from the forum on this, I definately don't want to return this one just to get another with the same issues. Also, I apologize in advance, I can't post pictures because these flaws don't show up in the pictures I have taken.
Thank you for your input!
