which is why higher end guitars cost a little more. That doesn't mean you won't find cheaper guitars that have level frets, it's just that the quality assurance on them isn't going to make sure that there is consistency among guitars.

This is why I would never buy a high dollar guitar from a big company without touching it and inspecting every inch of it first. Guitars that come off assembly lines invariably will be of mixed quality. You can get a gem of a Squire Affinity, and you can get a lemon. Same goes for any make and model. IMO, pretty much the only way to guarantee a perfect guitar is to go with a well known luthier. Their name and reputation depends on them producing a high quality instrument that is ready to go when it gets in the customer's hands.
