    That was real interesting watching the OP's video. It gives you a better understanding of the operations over in China. I was impressed. I own a 2006 Epi Les Paul Standard (in black) that I assume was made in China at that same facility. It's one of the best guitars I've ever played and the quality is top-notch. When I pick up my LP and play it I find it very hard to put down again. It's a real gem of a guitar.

    There is kind of a weird flat-ish flat spot on my Les Paul Plus Top Pro where the veneer meets in the middle,
    just enough to notice the pickup rings aren't quite met with that rounded profile -
    it really doesn't matter. It's a Very pretty piece
    but I do notice it over my Gibson which is perfectly rounded on top

    I was really impressed but not surprised. I have 6 Epiphones and I haven't seen anything I'd call a defect. I've owned others where I'd say that they reflected design or budgetary decisions I didn't care for (not a fan of the 650/700 pickups for example), but except for post construction damage (presumably in shipping), I've never had one with a legitimate defect. I know they happen. Just my experience.

    Anyways, this made my want to go buy another Epiphone! (So I know it's good!)

    Current Shopping List:
    84 Explorer
    Korina V
    LP ES
    Sheraton II
    The entire Masterbuilt acoustic line

    oh and another LP PTP in the bourbon burst!

    Lucky for us, we have the skill to swap them for something better. ;)
