NO way 1/4" at Least!
You may mock me, but that amount of finish shows how little Gibson cares to to it right.
They spray 3X the amount of lacquer on the guitar, so they son't have to be careful leveling it when it's finished. It's cheaper to waste lacquer than to pay someone for more time to do a careful leveling.
It makes sense, if you go thru the clear into the color, that's a full strip and respray. Still sucks.
Thinking ab out it, you can almost see how thick it is when you look at the edges of an aged area, where the finish is chipped off.
