I’ve only ever ordered one Gibson sight unseen. It was during the CME Memphis blow out. It was just too good of a deal not to. The price was so low if it didn’t work out, I could have immediately flipped it for a profit. $4000 guitar for $1600. Otherwise, yeah, I’d never buy a Gibson sight unseen. Or a fender. Honestly, in my experience fender varies as much or more than Gibson. I think about the only companies I trust enough to pay full price on a sight unseen purchase would be Collings and PRS.
