    Default 2017 NOS Gibson LPs closeout

    Hello
    Just wanna share what I think might be a deal...or not lol
    I never followed Gibsons prices as I really dont care for them much
    But I was on Samash.com
    And saw a 2017 Gibson SG HP for $699
    I offered $600 and they declined saying sold out
    I was like screw it I wanna see if sold out or not
    So I place an order and this morning I got a shipping notice that FedEx will be delivering a package
    SG link is 404 now so cant guarantee price on that
    But they have 3 2017 Les Pauls studios (T/HP) in black and wine red
    (T) $799 (HP) $899
    I didnt want the SG...just wanted 2 make sure they wernt lying about it not being in stock lol
    Now I got a $768 payment/guitar I didnt want lol

    That's a pretty good deal. It is pretty much what used ones go for.

    Sam Ash always blows out these when there's a new model on the way. The LPJ's and SGJ's and Tributes were nearly half off when they got discontinued.

    Truth, I grabbed my 2013 LPJ for $500 cash from them.

    Well where do I start...clearly I dont know how to post an img lol
    Its light
    Wide neck is different than I'm used 2 on a 24 3/4 so it kinda gives more comfort for chords
    It's kinda thick and getting used to it
    I really need to oil the neck its pale I guess nearly 3years in a warehouse will do that
    I like the rough satin finish gives it character
    Flaws from QC...some like knobs are slanted when u turn them u see them wobble
    Finish on titanium nut
    Frets are not the best kinda harsh finish on the edges
    Now some criticism from samash
    They shipped it in the original box that plainly just said
    "Gibson USA"
    So what did I end up doing
    I bought a Les Paul in Cherry Fade as I cant find the mojave one lol
    If u subscribe for their discount they gave me a code of ash5 discounted $132 which covered taxes lol
    Oh their premium soft carry bag is very well I was impressed at it 2 be honest
    Still wont trust it but it's really nice
    Action was super high also
    And I think I dont have much room but it's getting better with truss rod adjustment
    We'll see ima switch strings and oil the fretboard
