It has nothing to do with giving in, I just dont have the time to drag this out for a month or so long process. When I talked to the manager while I was out of town he said he would replace the tuners so I decided to take the tuners off so they didnt scalp me and take those to try and repair and sell later down the road. If they manage to mangle this neck up even more me and my coworker will do what @Believer7713 mentioned and have a little project to replace to tuner section with a different type of wood. As much as I want it replaced I did the math and its not even a day of work for me to get the money back plus. Although in the future if something like this happens at an actual guitar shop I will make sure to fight it to hell and back for them to get it right. GC isn't worth my time or hassle to get this Allparts neck replaced, too much corporate Bs to climb up to get it right. Now the tuners on the otherhand retail for $100+ depending on where you can find them so at least im not coming out empty handed.
