      I set fire to a Squire Strat. Made the mistake of burning it in a fireplace. The thick polyurethane finish smells like burning plastic and they burn very hot. It was nasty. It smelled like a house fire. Anyways the flames ate all the wood and just left the metal parts. It was a guitar I fucked around with and repainted and stuff. It was fucked so I put it out of it's misery.

        They have been sending them out like that for awhile. I picked up a Les Paul in Mars Music (When that store existed) in the late 1990's and it had the same problem. It would draw blood on you if you weren't careful. I have heard the top of the line Epiphones are better guitars than the Gibson USA ones. The top end Epis are made in Japan I believe.

            The guy could be right about the wood shrinking. The Gibsons I've seen with the overhanging frets have been in Utah. Also a store there that was a Peavey dealer would have to let the Wolfgang guitars acclimate due to the dry air. You also have problems with furniture cracking and wood joints coming loose in places like Nevada and Utah because of the dry air. The thing is, you shouldn't have that kind of shrinkage in Ontario so I'm thinking it's just shitty quality control.

              I have heard reports over the past few years of the QC being better in the standard Gibson facility than the Custom Shop facility.
              Would not surprise me considering they are still desperate to find people to work in the Custom Shop.

              As I have mentioned before, the Epis I have seen since the late 90s are absolutely perfect as far as physical construction.
