This was my second attempt at ordering a Charvel. First one returned for dead frets. Waited 8 weeks for this one from Fender. And dead frets from 12 th to 15th frets. Sam Ash was awesome they had there tech do a full setup but still had some dead spots from high frets. At this price I would expect to at least get a playable guitar so this one was returned also. Again Sam Ash was awesome through the process but seems like Fender has some issues.
