I have (I think) eight Les Pauls and several other Gibsons. Each of them were manufactured excellently and are wonderful instruments.

Same with me. Think I have around 15 and ALL are great to play. Some people like moaning about anything.

I've said it before and ill say it again....for every good review, there's a ton of bad reviews. If the guitar is great, 99% of the people say nothing. If there's a problem with the guitar, 99% of those people will trash it.

Most guitars these days are manufactured using CNC machines. They are accurately cut and shaped. Sure, there is still hand work done and that's where there may be some problems. I bought a cheap LP Melody Maker a few years ago. Only complaint was sharp fret ends as the guitar sat in the warehouse for 10 months before I bought it. However, it played well. Long and Mcquade fixed the problem as part of their setup and it's been one of my favorite guitars ever since.

I must say that my 336 has been very much like Stan's Gibsons - I couldn't find a single complaint. Then again, I guess unless you're a small scale builder, things tend to slip through the cracks sometimes.
