Actually, the fact that it was a True Historic Collector’s Choice #45 explains EXACTLY why the screenprint turned out the way it did. I never posted this as a “wow, Gibson sucks” thread. I just thought it was interesting. Your mileage might vary...I'm sorry. I don't mean to be a PITA for you. This is not personal, so not really about my happiness. It's just about facts. This is particularly important since we now know that it's not really a True Historic (as the thread title states) that was "retouched" or "fixed". Maybe it started as a TH, but was clearly repurposed. That could more easily explain why they retouched the headstock in some way.
But, now that you mention it, it is sloppy. And, considering that even after the guitar was repurposed into a non-TH, it was still listed as a $7k guitar. So, even though my customer wasn’t terribly concerned with it and decided to customize this guitar to his liking, I think any potential buyer would have been justified in being a little miffed about it.
