This thread is for everyone to write their own letter to Gibson. Say what you will, be it a complaint, compliment, suggestion, or whatever. I'll start:

Dear Gibson:

Why are you sending guitars to your dealers without a proper setup? Today I tried a new 2018 Les Paul Classic at a local GC, and the neck bow was ridiculous. I practically needed a c-clamp to play a barre chord. And what's with these flimsy 9 gauge strings you're using? A P90 pickup was designed in a time when strings were heavier. PLEASE go back to 10s, at least on this model. I really want to buy a 2018 LP Classic, but I have yet to find one in a store that is playable.

Sincerely,

Long time Gibson player

Read the rules. This thread is stupid case closed. BTW the new Classic is awesome. Take your sob story elsewhere.

Hey Chris. Why not avoid insulting people? That's the way normal people get along in life. You've been on here a couple months and you have two hundred posts and you insult everybody you don't agree with and you haven't made a big impression and all you do is argue. "This guy's dumb, that guy's stupid." Lighten up. Try something positive. :rolleyes:

Although Gibson "upper crust" will give a rate azz to what is posted here about troll complaints from purchasers.

Thus such complaint posts here on this forum is useless

This place has been known for trolls complaint about the company and their guitars.

Some justified.
Some ridiculous not ; like seeing the maple cap under the binding in the cut a way area.

Trolls will always try to pick a fight over helpful posts

Gibson can't possibly make guitars with perfect set ups. If they could, then all the adjustable parts would not be needed. Do you expect them to be in tune too? Just talk to someone at the store and tell them you are a serous buyer but need them to do a quick set up so you can play before purchase. I'd bet they would throw in a set of stings too...

You head on into GC and ask them to do a "quick set up", let us know how that works out for you. And let us know what happened. We used to have decent conversations with you. You not swallowing all the pills in the little crinkly white cup?

So what would you recommend? More stomping of feet and gnashing of teeth to try and get Gibson to produce guitars that magically hold the perfect set up?

They actually do have techs at GC. A simple truss rod tweak isn't akin to a refret...

I mistook you for the other Chris, my bad, I apologize.

But yes, they do have techs at GC. I think we are using the words "set up" for "make playable", which I agree with. Otherwise, my "set up" is definitely not yours and vice versa. They can't "set up" the guitars for every potential buyer that walks in.

Hey Chris, I did read the rules and I didn't see where what he posted wasn't allowed. Maybe I missed it but you were a little harsh on the guy. Bad day?

I like to look at a guitar's potential rather than what's wrong with it off the rack, unless it's really bad. But a little neck bow, bridge height and string change isn't going to keep me from buying a guitar I love otherwise. The 2018 Classic I played at GC was pretty amazing and made me want to buy it.

I would have said, "I'll take this home right now, paying cash, after you set it up properly and show me it's a guitar worth $2,200. If not, get me one that is and I'll buy that one." And, then we'd discuss price.

EDIT:
What's there to argue about that I don't agree with - truth? This isn't a customer support forum like the rules say. Sorry your impression of me is bad, but mine of yours is that you are pretty lame after this. Have fun being nice, moral cop.

And if you think all I contribute is negative, then read up some more dude, maybe you will see how I have been treated since day one. This isn't F'n daycare.
