I guess since you paid for it, it's your right to be satisfied/not satisfied with this. For me - these are non-issues. In the first pic, that little repainted area - I have something like that on my Loomis. Does it bother me? Not at all. This is wood - it's not a perfect material to work with. Sometimes there are tiny flawed areas that need a little patching so you can salvage the overall piece of wood. If it were a large area, then I'd have an issue. As someone else said, these photos are pretty zoomed-in. If you have to zoom in that much to see the "issue", then it's not a big deal (my opinion).
