Yesterday I got a Japanese Strat from the mid eighties, bought from eBay. The seller didn't tell me that on the down side of the neck the finish has peeled/been worn off in small spots around some of the fret endings, so the wood is bared. I've considered sending it back, but it'll be across the pond and probably a lot of hassle arguing with the seller. And it plays fine, once you get used to the slightly uneven feel. So - is a 'spot finishing' solution viable?
