"Good travel guitar, but..."

Is excellent for travel. I’m an airline pilot, and I’m always carrying it with me. The only problem is with finishing quality of the guitar, the neck next to the 12th fret increases its width on the upper side (6th string), its not simmetrical from head (less) to bridge. And other things like paint issues (like points, or bubbles), and some glue on the 2 first frets. Other than that I’m happy with the guitar, for the price. Gibson should care a little bit on the quality of this guitar, is an excellent model, the best for travelling, looks and feels like a real guitar, but the finishing quality is bad.
For my sound, I would change the pickups. I like the seymour JB and Jazz, the original pickup is not that bad.
The idea of this guitar is fenomenal! It’s a well balanced guitar, the tunning is easy, the neck is good (I prefer the neck not painted, with satin finishing, but this is ok). Good material, but the finishing isn’t that good.
Ease of Use
Easy to set, easy to use!
Just got the guitar. The finishing quality control is bad. My guitar neck is assimetrical from the 1st fret to the 12th fret on the 6th string side, and some painting finishing problems, and some glue on the first 2 frets.
Yes, it is worth buying, if you compare to the traveller guitar, it stays in tune much better, and has tremolo.
Not yet. I will send them some pictures of those finishing problems.
The Wow Factor
The best for travel. Period. But again, BAD FINISHING QUALITY!
I’ve been playing guitar and bass for the last 25 years, and I also play piano, and drums.
Heavy Metal, Rock, Shred guitar and Blues.
