Get a Jap Bacchus. Much better than Edwards.I got lucky with my SG Standard, it's pretty flawless, and the nut was even cut well. But, I wouldn't buy another new one with the shit like this I've been seeing. Problem is, production came to a halt, then when it ramped back up, they had to crank out some orders. With that, you get shitty QC, or none at all. And it's not just Gibson. I've seen some horrid guitars from a lot of companies - foreign and domestic.
I'm wanting another LP, but I think I'm going with an Edwards LPC.
