I'm very upset today. My 2008 Fender American Standard Jazz has been damaged by my luthier. They didn't tell me and clearly attempted to cover it up. During a pickup install they apparently punched two of the screws through the back of the bass ever so slightly, enough to dimple the back of the bass. They clearly attempted to buff out that area to minimize the appearance then proceeded to scuff up the majority of the back of the bass to match it. The body is black so of course the swirling shows up as milky white. There is also solder drip damage on the pickguard and the face of the body and brand new strings came back brutally dead. Did they assume I would forget what my bass looked like before it went in? Strings I can replace, pickguard damage I can overlook but the rest I'm absolutely beside myself. Did I say I was very upset? I'm PO'd they covered it up and I'm even more PO'd they devalued my gear. 2008 was an amazing year for Fender gear and this bass is awesome besides. It is a player but I don't brutalize it and the wear has been very light. I have had no intention of parting and hoped to have something of value 30 years from now. Next week I'll be heading in to seek remedy for this but I want your opinion before I do. As far as future value goes what is better, refinish of the original body or a replacement Fender USA parts body?
