I ordered a scratch and dent gibson special and it arrived today. I was looking it over and starting at the nut

the paint has a thin crack line about 2" long that run just below the fret board on eachside of the neck. it dont look like it's been repaired I guess it's possible something could have happend before the paint was dry. I expected some scratches but this I dont know. just blemish or bad neck???

Never buy those scratch n dent ripoffs... this is what you get.

Dude I don't think Gibson sell's 2nd's or Scratch and Dent's. Dealers do.

 

Mostly of the big Mail order Box'em and Ship-em Companies.

 

And they get those from returns on a "30 day trail"

 

That one never left Gibsons Factory that way.

 

That one was Damaged by someone by Shipping or Misuse or Neglect

There are some things I would be happy to buy scratch and dent or better still "B" stock. But a scratch and dent guitar should be priced same as a used guitar and they generally are not that significantly reduced.

 

Also, lets be honest, we are among friends here, a lot of Gibson's output should be called scratch and dent or second as it leaves the factory. They might not sell seconds but they do sell guitars that should be seconds. That is why almost everyone agrees you need to try out a few before buying "the one". The quality is that inconsistent. This sounds like the shop's fault though as that guitar should never have been sold as anything but a project.
