Here I s a picture of the whole guitar. I guess pictures with a lot in the background are bigger files? ?‍♂️
Yes they are. More info to compress.
I have never heard of that ever either. Very poor QC in that case.
Glad you like it, looks great

I actually called Gibson customer service and told them about the hair. The guy told me that the finish isn’t covered by the warranty. ?
That's crazy. It's not even an issue of it being a finish specific thing per se, it's a manufacturing defect. It's irrelevant what aspect of the guitar it involves, finish, whatever. It's a manufacturing defect plain and simple and that term should be all-encompassing as far as warranty is concerned.

Yeah i told him it’s definitely a factory defect. He said it considered a cosmetic flaw that could have been seen before I purchased it and it doesn’t effect playability so they don’t cover it. I could exchange it at the store I bought it from, but it’s a great player so I’m just going to keep it. Great players are hard to come by.

It is more than refreshing to hear a voice of reason and one that puts simple common sense in perspective. Congrats for being able to clearly understand what really makes a good guitar. So tired of hearing about stupid little inconsequential little cosmetic "flaws" that bring on the chest beaters that demand you send it back. When considering any flaw, my first question is always "is it a good one (the guitar)?" I'm encouraged to see there are some people out there that actually get it.

Totally! I know what you mean. I certainly expected perfection from a $3000 guitar, but at the same time I know these Gibsons go through a lot of hand before they go out the door. A hair under the nitro n the back of the neck isn’t the end of the world to me. Have you played any of these new standards? They are all plekked at the factory. They play so great.
