Yup...I agree with everything you say here muddy!!There really isn’t anything wrong with the instrument. There’s just a little unstained bit of wood that is purely cosmetic. Gibson doesn’t even cover the guitars finish under its limited lifetime warranty. This is the exact reason why. The instrument is made to be played and not to be obsessed over its finish. Even the holy grail original 1959 bursts are sought after in a variety of colors of faded finishes and flame.
If $2000 is too much to pay for an instrument that has a slight finish blemish then don’t buy it.
The real truth is Gibson doesn’t owe you nothing for the money you pay for their guitars. You can always spend your hard earned cash on something else.
Gibson will take your money if you give it to them.
To be truly honest it is the retailer who should refuse anything from Gibson that they know that will be difficult to sell.
I personally am not that picky about such things. Tone and playability is the utmost importance. Finish is more like I know what I don’t like and flexible with what I do. Gibson guitars are monster instruments and it’s a shame to make them less than that over a blemish.
So carry on with the “ they should be better than this for that kind of money”
