Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Since the guitar was purchased as a body/neck from the Stratosphere store, could it possibly have some defects? Perhaps there was some scratches in the binding and the clear lacquer is now "sinking" into the scratches, making the scratches now visible.
