After 9 long months, a custom made LP copy is complete. I'm very happy with it overall, but wanted to get your thoughts on one specification that didn't come as requested: to weigh no more than 3.9kg / 8.6 lbs I asked for all kinds of things in this guitar... ss frets, pickups, gotoh hardware, the kind of finish, neck profile, headstock break angle... you name it. the maker did precisely the type of finish I wanted. The guitar came exactly as described (see photos), except for one thing: The weight was supposed to be no more than 3.9kg / 8.6 lbs WITHOUT WEIGHT RELIEF. I know it's kind of a stretch for that to happen since basically only Gibson custom shops have this kind of weight range. In summary: The bad The guitar came at 4.267kg / 9.4 lbs, about 0.3kg/0.8lbs heavier than what I specified. I think I need to play more for sure, but the dish carve seems a bit too low, making it slightly uncomfortable to play on the forearm (gibson is perfect for me, but this one was handmade). The good: I couldn't ask for a better guitar. It resonates like crazy, sustains well, it's a crazy good instrument Everything else checks out as spec'ed. It sounds and plays amazingly. It definitely plays on par with other custom shop guitars that I am fortunate to own The guitar is beautiful... see below what should i do? Ask for a full refund and have them build another one Ask for a partial refund Ask them to build the entire guitar again Suck it up and don't complain at all This guitar is made in Brazil (I live in US). I have just a few days this year to decide whether to keep it or ask one of the options above. Ordering a replacement would take me at least a year to get it again. I'm fine if it comes right the second time.
