Yo BOLT, ain't it just frikkin GREAT when GIBSON USA sends you a Guitar that is actually set-up perfectly 'Out-of-the-Box' ? MASSIVE !!!! I just got a 2022 Les Paul Special in TV Yellow w/Wraparound Stop-Bar/Tailpiece and it was IN TUNE when I opened the box, ICFBI ! and the set-up was actually perfect for my prefs...Neck Relief was set @ .005" @ 9TH Fret, just about perfect...I got a 2022 SG Standard in cherry finish. The frets are indeed immaculate. The frets are all perfectly level with a neck relief of .005 to .006 .
Fret ends perfect with the nubs over the edges, and the crown of the frets are the nearly flat crown that Gibson as traditionally done.
It was set up perfectly and the intonation and nut slots were perfect out of the box. I just opened and Inspected it, and plugged it in and played.
I hear/see a lot of players bad-mouth GIBSON...I know they aren't perfect, but just about nothing is.....BUT, IGTY, I LOVE THE SOUND THEIR GUITARS MAKE....and that is why I only play GIBSON Guitars....the old 1980's-1990's GIBSON USA ADVERTISEMENT "Only a GIBSON IS GOOD ENOUGH !" is one I have lived my entire guitar playing life by........
