Hello everyone! Just picked up a used American Performer from 2018. The previous owner said he never played it, since he's an acoustic guy, so it has been sitting in the bag the whole time. Judging by the complete lack of mini scratches, I'm confident in him stating the truth. Sadly though, the guitar has a big fat spot in the paint job, right where you rest you right arm, that looks like the paint is lifting of the body. Its very bumpy with a little "ring" towards the pickguard, as if the paint has been pushed into that direction. Its very difficult to get on picture, but I tried my best: In addition to that, there is a gap between the neck and body, the fretends are very sharp and there is a very bad orange peel on one side of the neck joint, that looks and feels like an amateur did it with a spray can. Im usually not a quality snob, and even have a bunch of <100€ guitars that are all absolutely perfect. Despite me really enjoying it, I have to say that this US Strat is sadly the worst guitar I ever picked up in terms of quality... Does anybody know if thats just a general issue with matte finishes and if there's any chance of getting a replacement body from Fender, despite having bought second hand? Cheers!
