    As much of a PITA as it would be, I would have sent it back.

    I haven't bought any Fenders but from the comments I see here regularly, I think it's a waste of time to pay for the "name" Fender. The top guitar companies have all pretty much sold out and are living on their past reputation, have a market base of followers and don't have to worry about QC because someone keeps buying them. Stop buying them or buy older used ones until they get the message. Overpriced and poor quality is the sign of using their past reputation for business.

    Definitely send it back. It's not what you paid for. I bought an FSR Strat a few years ago, but I was at my local music store, so I saw what I was getting. It's my new #1. IMG_1402.JPG
