    It’s a nice looking guitar, regardless of the dots! I’m glad you like it.

    Send it back. That's a ridiculous mistake. I got mine about a month ago. After waiting over eight months! I was mad it took so long. If it wasn't right I'd probably drive to Arizona and slap somebody. Not sure if the pic shows it. But I think the dot neck is lame and boring looking when compared to the block inlays. New Signature Wolf makes my Stealth seem bland looking altogether. I may sell it. I'm also convinced the block inlays add resonance to the neck. When tapping the neck sounds different. Almost hollow in a good way. Like the finger board is more lively.

    And mine absolutely rocks! I love it! Instantly my number one.

    I think the Stealth is supposed to be bland, compared to the Signature.

    I do love the block inlays, it is a real tough decision. As of right now I am leaning toward keeping it. The guitar is real killer good. If I could inspect the replacement I'd prob9bly do it but I brought it from zzounds so it would be a sight unseen replacement which makes me real nervous. I dont want to go down the rabbit hole of guitar swapping. Funny, I was just commenting to a friend that nobody said send it back.

    I'll agree that if you like it keep it I guess. The Signature is supposed to be a cut above the rest. I'd bet a new one would be just as good. Or! Since EVH f'd up ask them to just replace the neck. Easier for them and cheaper for them. It's probably what they will do anyway. It's a lot of money to not get what you wanted. Ed's guitar. I would have sent it back. Either way keep rocking bro!

    Both are beautiful guitars, but I like your Stealth better.

    If you decide to swap it, swap it for a Stealth.... It might rock up with the block inlays...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    You may be able to have them send a replacement 1st, then try them back-to-back & keep the one that you prefer. Or maybe just request a replacement neck if you've already bonded with the guitar....Best of luck with whatever you decide

    The problem with returning it is zzounds return policy is that I send this one back and they inspect it, then send me a replacement. I'm going to contact evh again and see if I could get a replacement neck. Then I could have the Best of Both Worlds no pun intended. If a replacement neck is issued will it have the same serial number? I will ask evh.

    The plot thickens. I just got off the phone with zzounds and this item has been placed on backorder despite them showing 5 in stock. I'm going to be put in touch with someone from zzounds warehouse on Tues when they reopen to find out if all of them have the same error. If they all have the same error I think that will give me more leverage with EVH to get a replacement neck without returning my guitar. Also if they are all messed up and backordered it could take months to get a replacement. Right now I'm really hoping I can get a replacement neck and be done with it. I really do like the block inlays but mine looks nice with the dots too. I feel like it's a decision I shouldn't have to make.

    Most manufacturers, especially Fender, wonít send a major component replacement part without getting the original ďdefectiveĒ part back.

    This is also very unlikely to be some large scale mistake. Little slip ups like this have made it out of the factory in the past.

    If you donít like the dots then just see what Zzounds can do about swapping it for another guitar on Tuesday. Or just enjoy the guitar you have since you said it sounds and plays well. Heck, you didnít even notice the dots at first.
