The picture that shows the glue drops is magnified. Most people would not see that 'defect'. The only part of the brace not sanded - is the section that was scalloped.
I don't inspect the inside of my underwear drawer to make sure it is perfect. My guitars either.
I certainly don't want to pay extra for a cosmetically perfect brace that would stand up to scrutiny using a flashlight and a magnifying glass.
Ricky - having gotten plenty of mileage on your complaint - and suggestion that Gibson 'sort your people out', I submit your next move is to return your Gibson and get a Martin.
Of course, your Collectors Mint Museum piece will have to be dumped when you get your first ding from a falling capo, tuner, or case lid.

It is funny how people who call people "Trolls" usually meet the definition of one.

So you do not care about aesthetics, good for you, many people do care, such as some of my customers. I repair dings and scratches all the time. I wish more people were like this as more of the guitars that come to me would be in better shape.

This lovely thread and the basher thread currently wasting space here as well should be allowed to perish with what little dignity they have remaining.

Discretion being the better part of valor - I'm going to do my part to put this thread out of its misery, by acknowledging your comment but not directly commenting on it. Peace Out.
