    Inspectors name on the card starts with a J on the bench. The card with guitar D :messedup

    Is she a keeper? If so, then I really wouldn't care. Probably mixed up the photos. Post some pics up.

    Not sure I get your comment.. guitar goes on bench.. Tech looks it over.. Tech takes photo with serial number.. Tech puts photo in storage compartment and guitar in case. How do you mix up other guitar photos?

    Somebody's taking short cuts.. my other Gibsons credentials and photos match.

    This is one of the most petty, silly complaints I've ever read on here. How do you know from the presence of a different card on a bench who the inspector is anyway? If the guitar matches the picture taken on the bench, then congratulations! Your guitar was on a bench at Gibson, and someone took a photo of it.

    Seriously, this is ridiculous. Like that picture or any of the other crap that comes in that case besides the truss rod wrench/gforce accessories if applicable and warranty card even matters.

    Why do you even have a picture of the bench in the first place?

    Forget the letters not matching, I thought this was fake because Gibson's quality control measures me wonder if they even do inspections.

    Take it up with Gibson and let us know what they say. I'm curious myself.

    Some of the responses here are unbelievable.

    The act of Gibson including a photo of whats supposed to be YOUR guitar on the bench means absolutely nothing to a bunch of Gibson owners here?
    Its a sign of quality control or its supposed to be. Whats the point of the photo if they are just going to snap 1000 photos of the same model?

    Just pointing out that the photo isn't always your guitar in the photo. My last two Gibsons though had matching serial numbers in the photo.

    They offer bench photos? News to me and I just bought a new Gibson last week. Regardless, they could just set your guitar on the bench, take a picture, and put it in the case. What does it even prove? What's the point of that photo in general?
