made in japan does not always = quality. its getting worse in 2009. the 80's were an awsome time for ESP though. I work at a guitar store and I see the horrible fret work that passes on about %50 of ESPs under $2000. they must have the janitors assembling guitars with no training or quality control.

Took me a minute to catch it. Such a huge flaw, didn't register in my head that could be the problem. I was loking for scratches and stuff.

But OMG, that is bad!!

Eh, If it's just one guy working on his own guitar, or a tech at a guitar shop, then yeah there's no excuse. But I can understand the guy on the assembly line accidentally putting one on backwards, no biggie. But yeah, it definately should not have passed QC.

Stuff like this makes me laugh, because its such a simple mistake but it still happens. QC should've seen this one, but it kind of sucks because I'm pricing out ESP guitars (LTD) at the moment. So now tomorrow when I go to look I'm going to give every guitar I see the third degree, lmfao.

So what's next? Fender or Ibanez screw their tremolo bridge up side down? I just don't see a point here throwing e-**** like this.

It's his own guitar... He turned the bridge around himself...

Point is it's funny? Plus shows how easily any stories about crappy QC jobs can be completely fake.

That's what I got from it anyway.

The other thread looks much more real. I mean, sure, it's not that hard to loosen a screw on a bridge. But why would you want to?

are either of these real? If they are real, guitar companies are becoming like toy companies...
Only checking every 1000 or so guitar (toy) and if that one they check has a problem, they re-call the 999 that made went by. Of course I can't imagine guitar companies actually recalling guitars.
#33
Haha. Wow. The fret work is pretty bad on my 2008 Eclipse, but after 4 seperate set ups, it's finally getting to where it should be. Ugh.
