    And then don't advertise it well and a bunch of people complain that Gibson has the worst setups. Yep.

    If they don't set them up, not sure why they bother with PLEKing.

    Sorry, didn't mean to tangent away from this beautiful guitar. The colors are just perfect.

    Beats me. It was about 15 years ago I found out about it. It was supposed to be a courtesy and improve perception of quality. Just poorly advertised. Don't know when the started to PLEK.

    It's definitely a strange approach. It would seem to be that they'd do better to have saved the money on the PLEK but instead really push the word that they'd cover PLEK jobs done by a list of a approved PLEK shops. It's like the wanted to go the luxury car route (which, given their prices, I'd be cool with) but just couldn't get that last mile out of the trip.
