Good luck with that.....within a few months of its arrival the bridge lifted on my Masterbilt AJ500RC, it was fully expected as that model has a terrible history of lifting bridges. I'm having it repaired privately---Gibson/Epi could not build it correctly the first time, I have no confidence that they could repair it correctly.

 

Let us know how it turns out for you, please.....

I really doubt it is going back to China to be repaired, so you would probably get a repair and service center in your country. They would likely do much higher quality work.

 

My only issue with a new guitar was with a Takamine that I have since gotten rid of....I took it to a local store, he contacted Takamine and they let him do the repair under warranty.....worked out great. Don't know if Epi would do this, but seems worth a try.

I wouldn't send it to Epi for warrranty work, I would just demand Epi replace it with a good one right out of the factory. It's Epiphone's responsibility to supply their customers with playable guitars. If customers stood their ground and kept returning and demanding replacements for defective guitars maybe Epi'd get their quality control together. I guess they count on a lot of people just not knowing any better.

 

A brand new guitar shouldn't leave the factory in need of repair.

Send it back to who you bought it from. They should send you a playable guitar. A guitar with a bad nut from the factory is not a playable guitar. I would want a full refund.

 

Then go to a store and look at one in person to buy.

 

It seems to me that it may be a setup issue like Epi claims, but that also falls under the 'defect in craftsmanship' of their warranty claims, especially on a BRAND NEW guitar.

 

Shame on them....this kind of attitude on a low dollar guitar is what keeps new players away from the brand, or the instrument itself.
