Great guitar, sloppy finish. Pickguard screwed on at random. Isn’t even around pickups. Truss rod cover was spilt from the screw hole out. The way it was strung through the wrap around bridge made it look like the neck and bridge were off centre from each other. For a £860 guitar this was terrible. The control cavity cover plate isn’t a snug fit because it’s a standard size and this guitar has less paint and lacquer so they never took that into account. The Gibson strings are terrible for rattling. I changed them for daddarios and so much better.
