This is terrible. Full exchange would be totally appropriate, but Gibson has to explain how this could be.
Yayyyy. Thanks. I was telling that Poster it wasn’t a new guitar because it isn’t.The OP (who hasn't posted in this tread in over a month, BTW) said twice in this thread that it was purchased new (see 1st and 3rd posts).
I suspect you may be right (about the phony Gibson trashing post)... which is why I pointed out that the OP hasn't posted for so long.Yayyyy. Thanks. I was telling that Poster it wasn’t a new guitar because it isn’t.
It doesn’t look new in the pictures, the fret wire looks used. I think the seller got suckered and lied to or we were by the OP.
Would love to see the guitar which I had asked for more pictures. It may be at the end of the day a phony Gibson trashing post to stir the proverbial pot as it were.
It wouldn’t be the first time.
I just wanted to see the rest of the guitar so I could eat crow. There's still time! They may show up and post something at some point.I suspect you may be right (about the phony Gibson trashing post)... which is why I pointed out that the OP hasn't posted for so long.
And the fret wire does look suspect for a new guitar. But considering it’s a 2017 model that was sold at a pretty good discount (if the story is true) it may well have been a floor model that saw significant demo play.
That would be unexceptable to me if it were an Epi much less an R8 send it back.Hello,
I read this forum for a while but I have never posted, and sorry for my english too .
I purshased a r8 online (2017) , (good price: 2900 euros new) and i'm in the return policy windows.
Guitar is awesome, 8lbs 6oz, good feeling ,gound sound, very nice neck size but:
- There is like chips or small wood tear :
is it bad and dangerous in long terme or acceptable ?
Thanks in advance because it i return the guitar there is none at all at this price
Have to respectfully disagree with you, no offence intended. I have owned a couple of Tokai LP's (still own one now) and a handful of LP's; with regards to quality the Tokai's have been on par with or better than my Gibson Les Paul's.They'e also fake and different and all the exact same.
