  12. I Have emailed Gibson service 3 days ago with pictures ..and the dealer i brought it from , but have yet to hear any reply from them ..
  13. check out my post .on this forum ..goldtops is this normal ..
  14. see the lines ...well i have another 3 Les paul standards that are many years older than this ..1980 etc and not one of them has these marks in the nitro , yet they are all stored in the same room and in there case plus they never leave my bedroom.
