I recently purchased the Les Paul Standard 50s in tobacco burst. Jordan my sales rep and I looked through the four guitars listed on the Sam Ash website at the time and I selected a very nice burst top with nicely defined grain. Before I received the shipped guitar I had selected Jordan called and stated the technicians had inspected the guitar I selected and found a hairline crack in the neck and headstock and shipped it back to Gibson. They did ship me a guitar they thought I may like but when I received it the burst was not to my liking. I called Jordan and I returned the guitar no questions asked. Jordan and I agreed I will keep checking the site to see if another guitar comes up to my liking. Thank goodness Sam Ash throughly inspects their guitars before shipping because if I would have purchased from another on-line retailer or local retail shop I may not have noticed a hairline crack in the guitar. Thank you to Sam Ash for your awesome customer service and inspection process.
