I've always wanted a Gibson ES 335 and all over the internet, youtube, site reviews I've seen bad comments about gibsons in general. I never really cared for the bad comments and tried to read the positive ones. Until i got one, and maybe I am one of the unlucky gibson buyers to get a bad one but at 3,000 dollars why should it be bad? The Gibson custumer service is even worst than the quality of my guitar. The paint job was unfinished correctly, the center block wood was uneven and it had a nasty scratch on rim. To top it off the case was the wrong case and the guitar fits very tight in it. Trust me the reviews are real!! zZounds on the other hand has been very helpful and understanding exchange or return options.
