Since it seems that seeing is believing for the OP, I wonder how many issues you can find on a new LP would show up in pictures. For example, have a 76 LP that has its bridge drilled just millimeters off. Far enough to cause major problems playing it but nothing you can really tell by looking at the instrument. Still one of my favorite players. Local luthier slotted the saddles to compensate for poor quality building. But here is a picture of the guitar with the poorly drilled bridge posts. IT is the 76 standard on the right.
