    I used to live in new york ,not that far way from the music zoo.very nice place.The big chains ,from what i can tell have very few on hand. I was at Sam Ash last night and they only had the picture fom the web and the spec sheet from Gibson. Although I did get this . They only are going to get a few.
    it's a very long story

    I have noticed that most of the old timers that have been posting historic are gone or not posting much any longer........... After reading this thread...... I know why.

    My $2800 sunrise teaburst 2010 R8 has a better top than that without the sh glue job, at $3199.00 less.
    But you can't call it a Beano.

    O you can call it Beano if you want I guess :)

    does anyone else feel that Music Zoo shouldnt be selling this? obviously, gibson bears the brunt of the blame here but how can a dealer sell that to their customers?

    So now, when seeing such a thing on a 8 K$ guitar, do you understand why I criticize them ?

    To me it looks like guitar polish (wax), not glue. Just some residue that should have been noticed during QC, but is harmless.

    So that part is not buffed?

    Who cases those customs??? at least the last word in PRS if from the caser, he totally cleans the guitar before shipment.
