  1. Hi all, I live in the UK (out in the sticks) and don't have the opportunity to play either version of this guitar. I have played Hummingbirds in the past (never owned my own though) and really need some advice on the different qualities of both instruments. I play a lot of acoustic gigs and ideally need a pick up so the Modern Classic seems like the sensible option but while my head leans in that direction my heart is leaning towards the True Vintage version. I strum, flatpick and fingerpick. I've heard that the MC is a more durable instrument for regular gigging but that the TV will age better than the MC. I'm absolutely torn and I could really do with some quality advice. Thanks in advance.
  2. Ok, the retailer the retailer is Dawsons Music in the UK. Not saying anything against them at this stage, never had an issue with them before. Anyone offer me advice on the different truss rod cover, 'polish marked' custom finish and neck split? Don't really want to send this one back but it's a helluva lot of money for an imperfect guitar. All responses appreciated.
  3. Pics added. I don't want to say which retailer it is unless I find out that something is suspect but they're a major high street music shop.
  4. Hi, First time here. Long story - I ordered an Axcess in gun metal grey (w/floyd) from a major UK retailer. Got the guitar but it had clearly been played (lots of dings / buckle rash etc) so I complained. They took it back and told me there was a delay in getting hold of these guitars. I needed one so I explained that I wasn't fussed on the finish or the floyd. They called back to say they could get a custom axcess in ebony (w/stop bar) which was very rare. I said great and I now have the guitar but I have a couple of issues. I can't find any information about this guitar anywhere online and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. It's my first LP custom (if that's what it is!). There are a lot of 'polish marks' on the finish which I was told is not uncommon with a custom LP because of the way they are built but there's also a tiny split in the wood beneath the top E on the 1st fret. Would that normally have passed Gibson quality control? Don't get me wrong, the guitar is stuning and plays like a dream, I just want to know that I've not been conned! Can anyone please help? Pics enclosed.

Can anyone help? I'm seriously confused here!
