misaligned pickup rout & pickguard?

    $300 shipped OBO....should I be worried about the pickup rout and pickguard issue he mentioned?

    "First up is a Squier PJ body in Shoreline Gold with an MIM Jazz neck, pearloid pickguard, Badass bridge, MIM P/ CIJ J pickups, 3-way switch (P/both/J), Master volume, master tone. The action is pretty low... I'd say 'medium-low' as an estimate with Webstrings 105-45 strings.

    The J pickup rout was made larger by a previous owner. It's a bit rough, but you can't really tell from a distance. Pickguard routing around the neck doesn't align perfectly, but again, you can't tell from a distance."
  2. It sounds like a cosmetic issue rather than a functional issue.
