I ordered a 59 AVRI Strat from Guitar Center. I picked it up at the store - later I noticed the guitar jack was kind of sloppy in that a plugged in guitar cord would easily pop out of the guitar - the cord was just not seating properly in the guitar jack. When I returned it to GC they offered to have their guitar tech look at it. He opened it up and used pliers to crimp the back side of the jack inside the guitar. Bottom line is - I was not comfortable that this would be a permanent fix so I asked to return it and have them order me another. In addition, when he removed the jack plate from the guitar he put a small ding on the front body of the guitar - small, but still annoying. Is this high maintenance behavior or would you have done the same (returned the guitar)? My feeling is - for around 2K the guitar should pretty well be flawless when I get it.
