So I bought a Gibson EB-13 recently at my local Sam Ash. Really like the feel of it and I liked the range of tones I could get from the dual coil tapped humbuckers. The sales guy told me to take it home and play it for a bit, and then bring it back in for the included initial setup. Which was good advice, as it turned out that in addition to the usual new instrument intonation issues, there were some rough edges on the frets and there was some fret buzz. Dropped off the bass to the in house guitar tech, and a week later the intonation was fixed and the rough fret edges were smooth, but the frets still buzzed. I was a bit miffed that it wasn't done right, but I redid the work order and left it for another week. Went to pick it up tonight and there was still fret buzz. As one might imagine, I was quite upset. The sales guy who brought out the bass for me from the back informed the store manager, who came over and explained to me that the guitar tech left him a note saying that it was basically "as good as it would get", and he (the manager) meant to talk to me before I was given the bass. The manager said they would replace the bass with a new one, and I should use the current one until it arrived. I'm feeling like the manager is doing right by me so that's not my issue. But he mentioned that he's sent back some Les Pauls as well, so I'm wondering if there is a quality control issue at the factory, or is this just par for the course sometimes with mass produced instruments. Thoughts?
