No company or guitar is perfect and of course there are exceptions but I like the way Alvarez generally rechecks then sets the guitars to factory specs again after they arrive from China and Japan. It’s probably more important to do this with acoustics than electrics but should still be done with electric guitars as well.well I found a brand / factory who get it close to 100%
So it is possible - just not at factories who do 1000 or more guitars a day
with only few long-term employees
I've bought all the 16 guitars from this brand 'unseen' and online, some were used,
some were brand new.
The smaller dealers here actually do a setup and some of the guitars were not much out of tune when they arrived.
Those smaller dealers mostly do a better price than the BIG-retailers
Here they discuss in this video exactly why that’s important to do due to climate changes and wood movement in the guitar as stated in the original post, something Epiphone doesn’t seem to be doing in a constituent way.
These Epiphone Les Paul’s inspired by Gibson could be great guitars if they would just spend a little more attention to detail in doing the same.
