Had to send the first one back because the tone controls didn't work at all. Also had a big dent in the corner of the lower bout... I assume the shipper's doing. But Sam Ash made it right and replaced promptly. The second one also has a flaw: the hole in the tremolo block for the arm is drilled all the way through, so the tension spring would just fall through. Fortunately I found a screw that fit and plugged the bottom with it. I will add that this guitar plays superb. Needed a little setting up, but was almost perfect out of the box. I used the Fender manual and adjusted to their specs. Low action, no fret buzz, and plays in tune perfect! Just amazing for such a low-priced guitar. The only thing I don't like is that the volume is way louder in the treble position. But overall a great value and fun to play!
