The name goes on before the quality goes in.

This company is in trouble.

I would say of all the Gibson's I have ever owned I think I have purchased one new one and that was a LP Studio. Every other Gibson I have owed has been used. Screw putting one more cent into Henry's pocket. I usually buy my acoustics brand spanking new, but the ones I own are Martin's and are flawless. I've only bought one Gibson acoustic (used), and it was a J-15 and man you can tell the difference between a $1500 Gibson and a $1500 Martin. Light years apart. I sold it a few months after I bought it. Paid $950 dumped it for $900.

My old Norlin era SG Standard, 25th Anniversary Les Paul and Lucille were flawless.
The idea of sub-standard workmanship never even entered my mind back then. Maybe I just got lucky.

Nowadays it seem if you buy a Gibson you should resign yourself to either overlooking warts or doing some sort of minor surgery.
You shouldn't have to but that's the way it is.
Even so, no other brand of electric guitar interests me.

Gibson makes handsome acoustic guitars but they're not for me.

Your guitar you call ďPlugĒ either had a re-fret or thatís not a real Gibson. You have no nibs on the fret ends of the neck you pictured.

If you have doubt in what I am saying, show a pic of that guitarís headstock on the back - and also look for a scarf joint on the neck if there is any. I hope you didnít get ripped off and buy a Chibson unknowingly.

Sigh. It's an ES Les Paul from the Memphis shop and came without nibs. It's real.

Have a pic of the headstockís rear so we can see the wings clearly? Why didnít this guitar that has a bound neck not have nibs? I thought they do this to all bound fretboards... You ordered this directly from Gibson or is that hearsay?

EDIT: never mind. I learned something today... just saw images online of ES LP with no nibs... my bad...

Yeah, the majority if not all the 2015 Gibson lineup did not have nibs. I have a Firebird and Midtown Standard from that range and they don't have nibs. I agree, it is weird to see a newer high end Gibson with a bound neck and no nibs straight from the factory but they do exist.

Why do you think that's a fake? I see no reason to think that.
