I'm retired. I really don't have anything else to do.No, this isn't the first time I've experienced any of the other inane threads on this forum. There's a low signal-to-noise ratio here. If I took time out of my day to comment on every thread that's been overdone here, I'd never get to work.
About a year ago I finally gave in and bought a factory new LP Traditional at a price just below MAP from a reputable dealer we all know. It arrived with nasty scrub/scratch mark on the upper side close to the pickup selector switch. I was very disappointed and ended up returning it for refund. Dealer was very helpful, no problem there. I gave it a try ... just didn't work out. I was surprised the guitar made it past the factory QC personnel.
Yeah, I posted those pics at the time and somebody here said it was some sort of polishing wheel or something. I may have been able to polish it out like you did, and I think the dealer may have refunded some bucks if I wanted to keep it, but I was so disappointed after spending that much on a blemished guitar that I couldn't keep it. Gibson should really be able to catch and correct something so obvious before it leaves the factory, IMO.wow, i had an LP Traditional that came straight out of the box with the *EXACT* same blemish. same location, same size, must have to something to do with the manufacturing process after seeing your's, i'm now more inclined to think the blemish occurred during the manufacturing process. before i thought for sure the scuff marks were the result of a poorly fitted case. anyway, i was able to buff most of the blemish out using fiberglass polish.
