NGD! New Gibson...but I'm concerned ***UPDATE*** Shout out to Rick and Leitz Music!

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

Well I'm sure you all remember my post about 1.5 weeks ago:

 

The old NGD

 

Here's the update. I had worked with a gentleman by the name of Rick who works at Leitz Music in Pensacola, FL. His store is an official Gibby dealer. When I received the above guitar with the "ridge" I called him the next day and let him know what I had found and why I was concerned. He didn't ask ONE question, nor did he say or even HINT of accusing me of some wrong doing on my part. That was such a relief. He said to ship it back as Leitz has a great return policy.

 

Rick paid for the shipping back and promptly sent out another new J-45. This one arrived today and is perfect.

 

I can't recommend Rick and Leitz Music enough. If you are looking for a Gibson, and are willing to buy site unseen, trust me, Leitz Music will take care of you. Places like this deserve business.

 

Below are pics of my new J-45 and it sounds like dark chocolate!

Glad to hear it worked out well for you. A nice looking

J45. I thought chocolate was reserved for rosewood? Oh well, my newest sounds like peanut butter and jelly but I'm getting used to it.

Enjoy!

Glad to hear a good end to the story, and a great looking guitar at that! Just wondering, did you get any input to what the cause of the line in the first guitars finish?

Glad it worked out. I have not been able to bring myself to lay out my hard earned scratch on a guitar I had not held in my sweaty little hands first. I have, however, bought basket cases which were unplayable so also required a leap of faith.

 

Not sure about the "choclatey" thing though.

Now THAT is service! And that is a stunning J45, so happy to hear this story has a positive ending, and your J45 ownership journey now has a 100% positive beginning 🙂

Thought the dealer name was familiar. I purchased my J-45 from them at a Bee-Three show in 2014. It is the 5-star dealer “custom” model for that year. I meant to stop in last time I was near the Panhandle but never did...next time!
