Anyone interested in purchasing this guitar? It has since been replaced with a VOS ES335.


It might help if folk knew where you were.

Yours looks great...the little blemishes give it character. I purchased a new one 4 or 5 months ago and it is a beauty! I didn't notice any of the "Human flaws" until I sat in the living room with the sunlight shining in on it and began to notice the oversights...ah well...nothing is truly perfect and the guitar sounds and plays like a dream...I suppose I could always send it to a service center but for what? to sand it all down and refinish out the perceived flaws...nah...it says much about Gibson these days and fact that this is a custom shop guitar but all in all...I'll play 'er Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image As you can see...most of this stuff is very minor although the laquer dripping on the headstock is disappointing...Truth be told, this is a 5K custom guitar and where is this considered acceptable?...I feel your pain

[crying] Oh my...

I think I would have done a finish repair at the headstock. Shouldn't cost that much and is no problem for a skilled luthier who will choose a touch-up approach. However, you will have to do circa three weeks withour her.
