    Strings are in incorrect order.

    All that. I had to laugh a bit. I know the store, was not impressed if that's what they think is a great job.

    Paul, the strings are fine. The fret inlays are upside down.

    C'mon Billy - the first Paul would have noticed the color difference. And when you're signing, do you do it the same way as a righty, or are the words all backwards?

    The colour mismatch and sharp corners are the worst part. It does appear crooked as others have remarked and is there a gap on the top left corner of the inlay? I suppose it could be some sort of image issue...

    Not great.
