You're a good man Charlie Brown for being cool about it. These are hand-finished so a fault is always likely. I agree with the others too, I would not accept that neck binding issue. The dimple happens and that nut didn't look too bad either. That binding? Yeah no.I don't like to name names, but from a popular online retailer.
I was taken care of by customer service, so no worries or ill feelings.
I guess I got a lemon...it happens.
Yea, I understand there are lemons with any product you purchase. But I'm a bit curious how this guitar passed thru QC evaluations. I could feel the neck problem almost immediately when I first played it.You're a good man Charlie Brown for being cool about it. These are hand-finished so a fault is always likely.

Return it if you can. Shoddy crafsmanship like that is not acceptable, even on a $300 Harley Benton.I also have a binding issue very similar to that one.
It only happens at the high E side and along the first three frets, but it is a place where the thumb sits a lot, so I end up feeling it most of the time. It's starting to trouble me.
2020 Les Paul Standard '50s.
I have a 60's and it's not like that at all(regarding the binding). Send it back!
I have a ‘74 Les Paul Custom and a 2016 ES 335. When I change strings I put a tiny dab of lithium grease on a toothpick and apply it to each nut slot. I have no tuning issues. There are other products like Big Bends Nut Sauce that do the same thing.Hello all...my first post.
I received a new LP Standard 60s and I noticed some things with the short time I've had it and since this is my first real LP I'm not sure what's normal or not...
Anyways...the guitar will not stay in tune at all. I tune and after about 5 minutes it's out again. Yes it still has factory strings on it since I just got it. I've tried seating the strings (tugging on them), I always tune up to pitch, etc. The action is good, maybe just a little high for my taste. There are no 'dead' notes though which is good.
The nut on the low E side sticks out just a hair compared to the high E side...can't really see but can feel it for sure.
Where the binding meets the neck is where it gets interesting. If I rub my fingers up and down the neck on the sides, the binding sits flush on the low E side up until the 5th fret then the neck sticks out just a hair from the binding (again, can't really see it just feel it) and it follows a consistent feel all the way up the neck.
On the high E side the binding is flush at the 1st fret, then the neck (by feel) sticks out quite noticeably from the 2nd to 12th fret, then flush again on 13th-14th fret then out again consistently all the way up. The binding itself looks good as there no bulging or unevenness in it's appearance.
Any help/advice is appreciated...thanks.
