    I agree with everything you've stated and can't thank you enough for the additional info. It's a great resource to have winders/builders such as yourself on the forum and a great reminder to have a second set of eyes looking over any potential "vintage" purchase. I firmly believe that we can...

    60s SlimTaper neck of Gibson Les Paul Classic 2014

    Yes, post 2013 are still slim (compared to a 50's) IMO - the newer 60's profiles feel a bit flatter and chunkier than pre 2013. I would consider pre 2013 to be closer to the Fender modern C profile, but keep in mind nothing is absolute with Gibson. Always best to play the specific example...

    PAFs for sale near me. PAF gurus, check it out, please.

    You're scaring me James!! I see one of the leads appears to have been changed, the L tooling marks on the feet do look off, but I've always found those hard to judge in pictures alone (unless they are extremely clear) The tape? I see what looks to be newer tape over the coil leads, but I'm...

    60s SlimTaper neck of Gibson Les Paul Classic 2014

    An early 2000's model with a 60's neck will be slim taper. R0 necks of any year are typically chunkier than regular production line guitars. If you are specifically wanting a slimmer neck profile I'd look at 2013 and older. While not a guarantee, I've noticed that 60's necks prior to 2014 tend...

    2017 vs 2013 historic

    ^^^^ One of the most perfect posts. Especially this part. It should be a mantra

    It is normal?

    As long as you are happy with your decision to return it then that's all that matters. And I'm sure you'll find another one that you love soon enough. Heck, the chase is sometimes half the fun!

    It is normal?

    Two questions, and I don't mean to come across as condescending in any way. 1. Did you not notice it in the store? 2. If the guitar was otherwise perfect for you, why not have an authorized Gibson repair facility fix it.

    It is normal?

    Of course I'd choose the one that makes me feel great, vs the one that makes me feel so, so. However, I believe you just inadvertently proved the point I was attempting to make. The OP bought the guitar in person from a dealer and stated - Now, had the OP been reassured that everything was...

    It is normal?

    Sorry, missed this post. You are correct. That is not orange-peel. That is the nitro shrinking back into the mahogany grain. This is part of what you are paying for when buying a historic/reissue guitar. The thinner nitro finish vs the regular production line will shrink back into the grain.

    It is normal?

    The area of the maple top you pictured appeared to be orange peel. On the mahogany side, it looked to me like the nitro had started to sink into the grain (which is totally normal to see)

    Early 65 SG Special question

    Well if it's not, it damn well should be!! I'd say we could start a support group, but something tells me that'd only lead to more GAS. :cool2:

    It is normal?

    Completely understand and I wasn't questioning your decision to return it. We all have to decide what is acceptable to ourselves. Pretty much every guitar finished in nitrocellulose is going to have some level of orange-peel prior to being finish sanded and leveled. It's possible they may have...

    Early 65 SG Special question

    If you're not 100% than paying top dollar doesn't make much sense. As clean as it is, the market is fickle and getting what you paid back out of it is not guaranteed. Have you played the 65? If not, play it and then decide if you can walk away. On the other hand, if you've already played it...

    Early 65 SG Special question

    Looks like you'll be having another NVGD soon. :applause:

    Early 65 SG Special question

    I'm in no way an expert, but follow the market like yourself. IMO the price is fair. Albeit top of the mark. If I were in a position to buy I'd probably want to be in around $4200. I've noticed that the market for SG's seems much more variable than it is on the les paul side of things. The...

    It is normal?

    While I don't fully disagree... The larger point here is - When you go looking for flaws, you will find them. The world is an imperfect place and yet it is these imperfections and happy mistakes that so often leave the greatest lasting impressions on our lives. And if we look at this another...

    It is normal?

    I realize that everyone has their own level of acceptability, and I fully respect that when you're spending a good chunk of your hard earned money, however it seems as of late there has been huge swell of posts scrutinizing the minutiae and looking to find even the tiniest of imperfection as a...
