OK, now it's scaring me. I got Gibson Les Paul Standard 2008 in July this year and it was brilliant but it had some minor painting mistakes on one part of the neck. Now that painting mistake got bigger, and it's ruining the feel of the neck. It seems that that painting mistake is another layer of paint but I'm not sure, so I was wandering if anyone coud help me with this (ANY help). Thanks

Gah, Gibsons quality control isn't what it used to be, that's what happens when you have a crap boss and no motivation.

Send it to a good luthier, have him sand down the neck and refinish it.
Time is a great teacher. Unfortunatly, it kills all of its pupils.

Just gently sand the back of the neck and it will feel like a nice, well worn guitar.

it's impossible to tell if chipped paint happened at the factory, or along the ride where ever it ended up. anyway, 2 options. first would be to sand the neck back (some people prefer this, chances are you don't if you haven't done this already). second would be to send it to a luthier (or even gibson themselves) and have it touched up. if your warrantee is still good then i'd go with gibson. you'd never be able to tell the difference. another luthier might not have the right shade of paint.

I'm living in Serbia so I can't send it to Gibson (it would be probably stolen on half way to Nashville) and I don't have any luthier in region of 200 km. Will it wear off with playing?
