Gibson j-185 blues King

This is the latest addition to the stable. It's a very nice playing guitar with a very similar neck to the L-4 jazz guitar.
I had a problem with the pickup, the first and sixth strings were not amplified. I took it back to the technician at the Guitar Centre who worked on it. Still, the first string is not as loud as the rest but I intend using it with a microphone, so maybe that's not so important. The technician told me that the next one they had was plagued with the same problem. Seems like it's endemic.
I still really like this guitar and I wouldn't trade it. One thing I've learned is that nothing is perfect, but this is really close.
