A premium set of strings should always & only be gently hand wound. I only play hand wound strings, because you can tell the difference.

Great thread, I need some humor now and then. I think the circles would make it easier to play "rounds"

The G string key circle is much lighter than the rest and is going to severely screw up tuning, you must spend quality time running a power tuner on that key in both directions to insure screwability and key harmony.

I don't know how you can live with this, return it or burn it immediately, seek emotional damages in your lawsuit and when you win buy us all a beer. :cool:

Absolutely. Tone will be adversely affected due to those marks.

Sanding and refinishing those areas will even make it worst.

You may also discover that some songs you used to play on that guitar can no longer be performed.

I believe that happened to Mick Jagger once.and I was told that is why you seldom ever see him with a guitar during a performance.
