Also, I've gotten the impression from a few posts that there are quality control problems at the factory, especially regarding the finish. Should I be worried?

Of the 3 Carvin/Kiesels I own that they finished (I also have a kit), the finishes are flawless and beautiful. I can't speak for anyone else though.
I have a story...
The other day, I was carrying my guitar up the stairs (not the one with THHN option) and slipped. With all my falling weight, I jammed the guitar headstock into my wood stairs. It was so hard, I thought for sure I broke the neck, or at least the head stock. When I checked it out, I noticed a spot on the end of the head stock that looked like I chipped through the finish and into the wood. After checking it out for awhile, I realized it was a chip of wood from the stairs. The guitar is fine and has no visible or playable signs of any issues. No re-adjusting the neck or even tuning it. It is a week later and I still have not tuned it.

Idk man, I'm a pretty small handed guy, and get along just fine with the "standard" profile on the three K/C's I own. I'm pretty sure they're all standard, and I have the paperwork for two of them. I will say that the 25" scale definitely helps, because I have a guitar with a 25.5" and it's a bit of a stretch, and I've tried some extended range guitars and the stretching is too much... I don't think the thin neck (or thick neck) takes a whole lot off.
For some reason, 34" doesn't bother me on bass though... probably because I'm not typically chording or going too fast...

I know how to fix it, I just need a little quarter turn on the truss rod to add some relief. Watch some videos online that explains setting up the truss rod. You will be better off knowing so you can adjust to your taste.
jeff has about 6 pounds of carbon reenforced moon steel in them so other than filling it with cement they will move a hair.
