"Stay away from this guitar"

Look, no one is expecting something great from such a cheap product. However, we are expecting something that is playable with at least a smidgen of quality control. I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have guitars that cost over $1000 and guitars that cost #100. This may just be the worst guitar i have ever owned. As soon as I got it out of the box i noticed there was a huge dent on the edge of the fretboard on the 3rd fret. Not a big deal i expected this. dings and shoddy joints across the board for this guitar though. miss fret end caps (the fill to hide the fret wire), uneven binding, and when you look in the sound hole the first cross beam is already almost in splinters and the wood beneath it (the back of the guitar) has a huge chunk missing out of it. I have been playing Ibanez for a long time and expected much better quality than this. I didnt think it would compare to my prestige or my middle line rg but i did at least expect it to be playable. you cannot play any notes on the 3rd fret. after some truss rod adjusting most of it has came out, but the high/low e still have rattle that does not seem to be coming out. I will for sure be sending this guitar back. The strings that do play fine sound decent. Maybe I just got a lemon.
i have been playing for 13 years, electric,acoustic, drums, bass, and a little keyboard.
