    Black satin finish question

    I just bought a schecter sls c-7 in the black satin finish. The guitar plays great and sounds great, but I have noticed there are some bumps in the finish on the back of the neck. Is there anyway to get rid of these, or should I return the guitar. I wouldn't care if it wasn't on the neck, but I can feel them while I am playing. It really sucks because the guitar plays well and sounds great. It looks like it happened when they finished it.

    u could put some scotch/painters tape something like that down surrounding the bumps, then take a razor blade flush to the neck and remove them that way..sand if needed.

    If there's more in stock I would return it over trying to fix it myself.

    yeah they ordered it for me, they didn't have it in stock, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it. They will return it and order me another...I wish I didn't have to, the guitar plays great.

    I could probably sand them off, but my main concern is will the sanding scuff the satin finish up really noticeably...

    Does it sound good? Does it play good? Then who fucking cares, if you return it you might get a beautiful looking dud.
