As the title states. I traded all of my Gibsons LP Standard, SG Reissue, ES335 for a new 2010 Cu24 25th, and a used 2004 Std 24 Gloss, and a Mesa DC-3 + all new tubes. May seem nuts, but there is a method to the madness.
I am just so sick of Gibson and their complete lack of quality control. Henry can keep riding the name and shipping garbage. I just tried to purchase a new 2012 LP Std, and after receiving and returning 5 due to unacceptable flaws, I have decided to dump Gibson all together. They have now joined my Apple/Sony list of companies whose products I will not purchase.
Only reason I waited so long to pull the trigger on the PRSi is the Cost. But, the price is MORE than worth it. I will never sweat another PRS purchase. EVERY one I played was flawless. Perfect.
Special thanks to Vic at Flores Music for dealing with my crap. 57/08 FTW!
