Hello thanks for having me, I recently bought a 2016 Gibson Les Paul standard and everything in it is a dream come true, but there is a detail. The binding (cream binding) in the areas that you sit and play, I think this guitar was mostly used sitting down by the previous owner, are a little bit black stained. Areas like the arm rest and mostly the lower (only) horn. Is not super obvious from far but I can see it a lot. I've read that NAFTA can take it out but I want to make sure. Do polishing with heavy cut compound will solve this. Any suggestions guys? Thanks in advanced.
Hello, I know there are manu open forum about those "regular" gibson years but here is my history. I bought a new Gibson Flying V High Performance 2016 via Thomann, in 2017. It appears to have some bad finishing details. I prefer not to return it, because it was just out of stock (like I said, its a 2016 guitar bought in 2017) and because at the time I thought it was not a big problem. This was my first "good" guitar (above 1K$) and it sound good so I was kind of shocked by that but at the same time I did not want to get it off my side. Some years passed and I really can not believe how a guitar that has passed by professional hands could have this kind of damage. The wood on the frets is whitened un some spots. Its beautiful but its kind of damage in some spots, like I said. The guitar has a lot of scratch in the neck, many of them in the left side of the neck if you look the guitar frontally. The fretboard binding is a complete mess, it looks unfinished and a very poor attention to detail. At the same time, the neck on the HP model is smoother, there is no "jump" beetween neck and body, and a light crack has appeared in this spot. I thought that there must be there a line where the union is, but this fine line is irregular and loks cheap. Is this real? Im looking for some advices, how can I solve this? I know its my fault for not returning it back, and I know probably theres no solution but I need to say it.
