I watched a YouTube video last night about some online guy who got a free Les Paul. He picked it up at the Gibson factory and got a tour, etc.... You would think the guy would have been thrilled and ran home and plugged that guitar in. Nope, instead he took it to some guitar store where they spent the whole day putting it through the Plek machine and looking at a computer model of the fretboard so they could critique the guitar (which IMHO was pretty darn good for having been taken out of the factory). The nut was cut high (as I would expect from a factory guitar) and so that was a problem of sorts. The video ended with the guy playing some lame, boring, cliched guitar. Do people even care about guitar playing anymore or is it just about looking for the perfect factory instrument and lame gear demos (example - play something like Suzie Q then throw in 10000 extra notes at the end or out of tune blo0ze bends)? I don't want to name the guy or video because I'm being critical but jeeze, just be happy cut the slots a little and play the thing and enjoy it. Who cares what some hospital looking machine says about it (disclaimer - I have a few Gibson guitars that were pleked at factory). I guess in some way this kind of stuff is good for economy as people buy mountains of stuff they don't need or actually use for anything aside from pictures on the internet but I for one find it wicked depressing.
