    He's talking about the side dots Joe.
    The first fret marker is not centered in the binding, but the 12th fret markers are.
    Little details, but I can see it being annoying as hell.

        I thought he was talking about the hole in the binding on the part that comes from the headstock. Also those tuners looks pretty bad.

              Is it a hole? I never even noticed that tiny mark. It kind looks like a very slight discoloration of the maple.

                I think he's talking about the gap between the point of the headstock binding and the neck binding, right below the middle of the nut. it's an easy fix for a luthier to do, as you just have to make a filler from some spare ivoroid binding and acetone, but it's also definitely something that should have been done right from the factory.

                  I know how if feels unboxing your new guitar and seeing a fault like that.
                  Jackson screwed up my Masterbuilt King V three years ago.
                  One tuner was mounted crooked and the other mounting holes for the Schaller tuners were not cut deep enough.
                  So they stick out a bit and don't sit flush on the backside.
                  Also they messed up the binding transition from the headstock to the neck, on both sides.

                  I ended up keeping her because Jackson stopped accepting Masterbuilt orders and so my dealer couldn't place another one.
                  By the way that guitar did cost me $6000+
                  At least they didn't mess up the side dots on mine. Guess I was lucky?

                  Do you have any more pics of your master build guitar? I'd love to see it.
