Re: Whats up with Gibson?
I went to a guitar store six hours from home to check out a 3120 this spring........it was very close to where I had to travel anyway, so I made the trip to the store. Anyway, the people working there were ranting about how the guitar was just traded in from a well known player in town, and he was an Ibanez guy.......and this was his guitar....blah, blah, blah. Finally, they let me hold it. The body was pretty nicked, the frets had quite a bit of wear, the bridge as at a 45 degree angle to the body, and the strings were like a quarter inch off the fretboard. And they kept telling me,,,,,,plug it in, try it out, it is set up, ready to go,,,,just in from this local famous dude. To top it off, any questions I had,,,,like what pickups are in it now, etc..........they kept surfing the internet to try and answer the questions. Needless to say, I left without the guitar.
