    Attention to detail please.

    Overall positve , but attention to detail was lacking .i.e. i would not have expected a new [ Eastman] instrument with quite poorly deteriorated strings & the need for me to get fretwork polishing, etc.. which I have arranged to be done..However, I do like the istrument, and I was expecting the possible need for a set up etc, so its ok , but I was a little disappointed that it has proven to be essential , in my opinion, to have that done.
