Regardless of the fact that this guitar is fake as hell, whenever I see a "for sale" ad with pictures like this I immediately back away. Guitar thrown on to a dirty bed, sh*t scattered all over the place, gross toes in the frame.. It's 2020, literally anyone can take a decently framed photo with...
It's insane to me that Gibson still makes a USA built Les Paul over 10 pounds. If it's sitting on your lap a few times a week, great. But if you're actually playing live, there are SO many better Les Paul style guitar options out there that are superior to the Gibson USA line.
Congrats! The Smallbox is definitely going to be my next amp purchase. I'm just finding it hard to justify buying right now because my Landry LS100 covers a lot of the same territory. But the Smallbox 50 .. man, it's just has CRAZY good tone.
The finish bubbling up on the body logo is ridiculous. They knew this was an issue before they sent it. There's no way this was missed, and they sent it out anyway to buy some time. Along with the misaligned side dots and all the other issues, this should have been a complete rebuild.
