They said you're good. You're good.

I don't have that crap for any of my Les Pauls, either.

3- Yeah the guitar is made of multiple pieces of whatever mahogany they use, that is very common.

2- ?????

1- Tuners AFAIK should be like that, it is fine.

They shouldn't disappoint you, guitars are made of multiple pieces of wood and have tuners that aren't perfectly in line.

Ah, okay.

That is just sloppy QC it looks like to me, nothing to really worry about as far ask I know. Someone feel free to correct me.

Looks like mine...... I can't anything wrong with it. The tuner placement follows the shape of the headstock. My body is two piece as well.

The tuners are supposed to be like that, as others have said. I think they're only in a straight line on the Historics.

Dude, at this point, stop worrying and put the covers back on and play the hell out of it!!! It's a legit Studio so enjoy it! Nothing wrong with asking how it's constructed (afterall, knowledge is power), just don't second guess your purchase. HNGD

to me it looks fine. make sure the head is at a 17 degree angle. also send Gibson an email with the serial number asking for some info (never tryed this so no garuntees). if it plays fine and you like it, its not a big deal, but i can see it beeing agrivating if you paid Gibson prices for a fake. i think your okay though. if you havnt bought it yet, tell the guy you wont pay full without paperwork.
