    Did you buy without seeing it in person or seeing pictures?

    The pictures presented don't show all this stuff.
    I went back and can see one ding in half shadow, now that I know it's a paint chip and where to look closely.
    Hardly fair disclosure.

    Yep, that's not what I'd expect for something described as "Mint". If it helps any, the velcro should be easy to remove with Zippo fluid.

    Yea - I would just use a hair dryer, but the paint chips will be an issue if I tried to resell.

    I hope you're sending it back. That's BS.

    From Reverb description of Mint: "If there's any sort of imperfection, the item should be listed in Excellent condition at best." I would say those qualify as "any sort of imperfections."

    Perhaps they meant mint chocolate "chip" - amiright?






    Seriously though, I hope you get some resolution here because listing that as mint is preposterous.

    I think we just all need collectively change the definition of mint to "jacked but ok"

    Because sellers across the world have no clue. Be the change you want.

    A little GooGone and some elbow grease and that will disappear. Can't help with the chips, though.
