I'm trying to remember if I have ever been 100% happy with a guitar I purchased from an online vendor. I can't think of one to be honest. I have found something I didn't like about every one that I can recall right now. That's one of the peculiarities of buying online. I think most vendors would probably say it's unreasonable to expect hi-res detail shots of every square inch of the guitar but that's exactly what you would very likely do if you bought it in person. You'd look closely at every part of it, flipping it over, holding this way and that to catch the light. Checking how it feels in your hands. That's what I'd do and it's apparently also what the OP did once it arrived. And why not? It's our nature to scrutinize our new gear. I do understand the lure of online shopping. There's a significantly improved selection to browse without driving anywhere; just a few mouse clicks. It does come with pitfalls though. I've never seen any data but I do sometimes wonder if the price of new gear is being affected by the increased number of returns that inevitably accompany online shopping.
