Hey guys. I have been looking for a bass for quite a while and found on steal on here and so I bought a Schecter Diamond Series Stiletto Eltie 4 in honeyburst for about $371.13 after shipping. From what I was told it was an excellent deal by a guy at Guitar Center. I have one little problem though. Supposedly during shipping it was cracked between the neck and the fretboard. The chipping goes to the fret or so while I don't know how far the crack goes, I do know though that it goes at least halfway down the first fret I believe. The chipping on one side is real bad and pieces of the finish has actually come off. What would you guys suggest doing? I talked to Guitar Center twice already. The first time I was told it could cost about $100-$150 and not to worry about it if it doesn't get bigger. I went back today though to pick up my new amp and get a written estimate yet couldn't get that since the repairman was not in. So Thursday I plan to go get a written estimate. I plan to file a claim, as suggested by the seller, and have UPS pay for the damages. First though I need a written estimate. Does this seem like a good idea? Or should I just get a full refund on the bass from the customer? What I was actually thinking about doing is having it fixed and trading it in for the Schecter Diamond Series Stiletto Custom 4 in natural satin since it is a lot lighter. What would you suggest doing? I can get pics of the damage and all yet they are not very clear at all due to the quality of my digital camera. Well thanks again. I just would like to get this all fixed asap and that and am curious as to what some of you would do in this situation. Thanks.
