    You'll never forget that spot is there


    Yeah but I feel I lucked out in terms of sound and playability...what are the chances of getting a cosmetically perfect, great sounding, great playing Gibson? I came pretty close...

        Well I'm gonna have it exchanged. Screw it, I'll keep doing it until I get one that sounds and plays as well as this without any flaws.

              So, got the replacement in the mail today. Plays just as well, sounds similar, maybe slightly brighter, still one of if not the best sounding guitar I have. The finish is fine, the wood looks nicer, no flaws, only the overall color is a lighter shade of red. Let's forget filling the grain for now, but wouldn't dyed shellac work to make it a bit darker? Shellac works with everything...

                Congrats on the guit!

                I am *seriously* thinking of getting an SG Classic faded, too. (yes, that "Live at Leeds" sound

                If the orange peel and grain really bothers you, trade it in and get a non-faded model.

                  That's a beaut!!! Congrats!

                  Oh, you exchanged it. Well, still!

                  Give the grain-y feel some time. My LP Jr. is finished that way and the neck has worn down a bit with playing. It's smooth and silky now.

                  I actually liked it so much I got an LP BFG.

                      "but damn, it's like they didn't use any grain filler at all. I can feel and see all the open pores"

                      this struck me as funny, hehe. the entire purpose of the faded finish is that the grain isnt filled and you can feel the pores.

                          Actually, I think the purpose is that they use a way less expensive method of finishing them so they can sell them cheaper. The effect is that it has open grain and that particular feel.

                          The effect of the cheaper finish method could just as easily be dipped-in-plastic.

                              same thing. my point was its the way the finish is, and a big part of its appeal. listing it as a defect is funny.
