Question: Cutlass help please.

Question: Cutlass help please.

I got my Cutlass and the thing is simply gorgeous, but it has two little issues that bug me. The biggie is that the neck and neck pocket don’t seem to be aligned as good as they should be. There’s a big overhang (the width is about medium-to-heavy pick) from the body over the neck at the neck pocket. It is way bigger than my other three EB’s, so it is very noticeable.

The other abnormality is a weird concave by the input jack that must have been a dip in the wood before they painted it. It’s sort of hard to see in the picture. That’s pretty minor, but the neck pocket is the bigger issue and not present anywhere close to that on my other three Music Man guitars.

Is this something that can be fixed, or is it locked in place because of the 5 bolts being drilled where they are?

Thanks for the help.


P.S. I notified the dealer on and hopefully they will be cool about returning if I need to. 🙁
