New Les Paul Modern with "Trad Pro V" truss rod cover


Recommended Posts

Went shopping for Les Paul modern yesterday on Israeli official (and only one) authorized Gibson retailer.  

Closed a deal on Les Paul modern on a new box.   After I paid for the guitar, the seller brought that from the stock room, and opened it in front of me.   When I opened the box, not only that I saw white powder stains on the neck on frets 1 and 2 (pic  is after seller cleaned it, but it still shows) and some other stains that looked like glue, I also noticed that the guitar had a truss rod cover for Traditional Pro V.     

Store seller was surprised, he mentioned maybe the "new guitars" come like this. ..  I had a chance to see the certificate, it was manufactured on 2019, so not really new, and anyway, what's the deal with Trad Pro V on Les Paul Modern?  could that be a manufacture mistake? or some sort of "class B" guitar with some defects? 

Anyway , I asked to change color to the  faded pelham blue and that one had a regular truss rod and looked great, so I took that instead.
