Gibson Memphis ES-345 Reissue - TriBurst Reviews

    Poor Finish Quality

    Beware if you are expecting attention to detail on this instrument. It just doesn't have the finish quality that one would expect from a $4000 instrument. I have two PRS guitars, one Melancon, and one Taylor and the Gibson doesn't come close in terms of finish quality. For example the rosewood neck has significant scaring from the fretwork. The finish is loaded with scratches from a poor buffing job. The inlay on the fifth fret doesn't fit flush on fretboard. The buffing compound used during the manufacturing process was all over the pickups, binding and body of the guitar. I chose to keep the guitar for it's playability and sound, but don't even bother if you are particular about how your instrument looks. It's a disappointment to say the least. My salesman at Sweetwater pulled several additional 345s from inventory to inspect and all had similar issues.
