Refret gone wrong
It is truly awful seeing a nice guitar being botched by an unexperienced luthier. This one had a bad misfortune of being refretted, and as you can see, it's fingerboard got really badly chipped due to reckless fret removal. We were given the honor of redoing the work and setting it straight, which included a full refret and filling in the pits and masking them the best we could. While we (and our client) are happy with the result, we were baffled that this beautiful Gibson had left anybody's shop in that condition. Ba careful folks, choose your luthier wisely!
