A quick update for posterity and in case it helps anyone in the future:

I spoke with PayPal on the phone, and they said not to open a dispute yet. Instead, I got email confirmation from the seller that he would give me a full refund + return shipping, so went ahead and shipped it back today. If for some reason it arrives and he doesn't refund the money, that's the time to file a dispute according to PayPal.

Just a few more photos from yesterday that might show the flied down/scalloped edges better, though it's not easy to photograph:

Eric,

The things that that spelled poor workmanship th me are the huge nut slots and the sloppy fit where the fretboard meets the headstock top. A pretty sure sing that none of the workman is pro level. Good luck in finding what you want that hasn’t been buggered.

Oh yeah, if it was a pro level repair I'd ask for a partial refund and keep it. This is far from that.

Anyway story is over, as long as I get my refund when the guitar arrives...

Got the refund, all's well that ends well I guess! I'm still kind of looking for a Suhr Modern HH with Gotoh trem, though.
