Hello all! This is my first post since my introduction. I had previously purchased a 2016 Les Paul Traditional on the 14th of Feb. When I got home, I had noticed a couple of imperfections. 1: a film residue peeling off the nut.2: a huge imperfection on the 16th fret3: wasn't staying in tune. I brought it back to the music store where it was purchased. I am happy to announce that because of me, that Particular Les Paul has been shipped back to Gibson. The store had a desert burst available. I took a look at it.... it looked as if it had been sitting in a closet for a couple of months. Caked on dust, swirl marks everywhere and it had a couple of dings on it (one in the back and one on the neck). Also it wasn't the colour I wanted. This being said, I took the next big step and ordered a brand new 2017 traditional cherry burst. It took one week for it to arrive. Got it on the 1st of March. I opened up the case ,and it was beautiful. Set up was awesome. It was in tune. The craftsmanship was amazing. It still has a new guitar smell. Lots of case candy as well. I am very happy and pleased to be a brand new les Paul owner. I haven't been able to put the guitar down. My Strat and Tele are put away(out of site,out of mind). I can't get enough of my Gibson Les Paul. Posted Image

Bad luck with the first try but looks like you struck gold with the second attempt! Good luck with it and congratulations!
