"So much for QC......"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First up whoever scraped the binding obviously has an eyesight issue. Whoever let it pass QC must be related to the scraper.Next up there's a high spot on a the 16th fret which makes basic set up impossible as-isFinally there was some serious bow in the neck. Like far too unusual for a guitar built in late November and arrived at my house in December. It had to have left the factory with a bow.The guitar does sound fantastic. I've got 4 other Les Pauls('75-'16) and this one has a sound of it's own, but the others had zero QC issues (3 of the 4 were bought brand new).Took it to my guitar tech and he'll fix it up- just add another 2-3 bills to your purchase price. I would have returned it for another but I have no faith in Gibson's QC on the next one either so I'll just pay the extra to my tech to get it up to playability- though I really question why I'm keeping it in the first place at this price point. Pretty sure I won't be adding a 60's version to my collection unless an impeccable version ends up at my local shop so I can check it out in person.
