I’ve had the same issues, and the worst was a maxed out truss rod. I think it really boils down to the person working on certain aspects of the guitar. It sucks that a person would just pass a guitar knowing very well they half assed it.I also have had similar experiences in the last 12 months with Gibson Les Pauls. My 2019 Standard arrived with very odd wavy binding, a chipped fret, and a rough fingerboard. I ordered a 2020 Les Paul Classic and it arrived with the oddest finish flaws I have seen yet around several sides of the neck joint. I finally have a keeper (2020 Les Paul Standard) but it took a while.
I used to live in San Diego - I loved it there and miss it quite a lot. The first Les Paul I ever bought new was in downtown Dan Diego in 1993. That guitar was flawless
Here are a few pics of my QC issues
