    Do you believe in owning a Second "Beater" Guitar?

    Yes! I was a youth minister and teens wanted to play my guitar a $6000 25/50 Gibson LP. After it was banged against a door frame once I bought beater guitars to lend out to teens who wanted to play. SAVE YOUR BEST ONES buy a beater or two!

    New 60s Standard Bourbon burst bridge won't go any lower. Concern?

    Keep in mind that I would never do this but, you could take the spin nuts off under the bridge and file them down to be thinner. We are talking about A tiny fraction of a millimeter.

My guess is the tubes will have issues and the capacitors may be a problem now as well. I would refuse shipment on it, or...

    Should i return my new Gibson? #2

    I would say judging from the pictures that you sent, it looks pretty good to me. Maybe the one in Dent on the binding could be a problem but everything else seems pretty minor. You have to ask yourself if this is going to be a working guitar or a museum piece. Frankly, I have both. If you are...
