It's hard to believe a replacement picjup is not available now,
a month seems unreasonable. I've had very good customer service
from Gibson in the past,( it was a while ago regarding my LP Classic,
but they were very responsive and cured the situation quickly. It
was a case problem, the guitar was pefect. I'd request a replacement guitar.
My instruments:

2010 Gibson ES-339
2012 Epiphone ES-339
2010 Fender American Strat
1999 Taylor 410 Ce
2006 Deering Sierra
2010 Fender Bandmaster
2012 Peavey ValveKing 112

Hello all!
This is my first post. After watching and reading many reviews online about this guitar (the Ultra-339), I decided that this is going to be my first real guitar purchase. It seems to have everything that I could want or need in the foreseeable future. I am just really worried about the QC issue with this particular model. I went ahead and ordered it based on the apparent sincerity of Gibson's customer service, and because some users don't have these problems at all, and those who sent it back to Gibson have had success. Hopefully mine will arrive free of defects. I can't wait until it arrives!
Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Ultra-339 in Pelham Blue
Kalamazoo (c.1940) KG-21(?) Archtop Acoustic - PM me if you have any info on these guitars. Thanks.

Don't have one of these but I wonder if I should contact them about the wonky Bigsby on my Blak and Blu?

Haven't tried to correct it yet, but it's really stiff and unusable.

I did get the softer spring that Reverend sells for the Bigsby but haven't installed it yet.

Really wish I got the one with the Trapeze tailpiece instead of the Bigsby.

Back to your regularly scheduled topic.........
