Never tried either of those! I don’t think you can go wrong with Throbaks. They really do sound good! I also have another Les Paul with the PG Throbaks and they really sound good too.I’m getting some whisker buckers and Doyle coils coming in. I will try throbaks if either does not fit the bill
Based off of what you said in terms of playability, etc. I’d keep it for sure - but, you should get Gibson involved in terms of the repair and/or for a partial refund - I’d let them figure out how to fix it - if you take it to someone to fix and they mess it up (without getting Gibson involved) you’ll be SOL - like many have mentioned though, a super easy fix for someone that knows what they’re doing - nitro blends into itself very nicely - either way, good luck - super nice looking guitar too by the wayThanks all so far, I’m pretty sure I’ll make the decision to keep it to be honest as if I order another one it’ll probably have something else undesirable on it. Just chalk it up to ‘one of those things’ and maybe look at a pro touch up
Agreed. After I saw that one I went searching for a lefty like it. To no avail. It is magnificentWow some great lefties in this thread for sure.
This one is probably one of the best Gibson USA tops I've ever seen, ever. Way better than a lot of R9s I've seen. Just loads of figure and character.
Out of the last 5 Gibsons I’ve owned, 4 of them have had a similar issue on the neck binding, including on my #1. Seems pretty common, not sure why they don’t do something to fix it thoughI've seen similar on pretty much every Gibson I've owned ever. Chatter marks in the binding on the neck around the fretboard, totally common in my experience. Same with on the top of the binding where the rosewood meets the binding after the lacquer ends.
I wouldn't accept this crapmanship on the $1200 tributes Gibson is selling, and they aren't from the custom shop!I would email Gibson and ask them if this is the type of craftsmanship that you should expect from them. Ask them how does a made to order guitar leave the factory like that?
Me personally I would return it since the price you paid and that it was custom made for you. FWIW even if it was on a less expensive model, I would return it.
