nice friendly answerAre these the only metal parts that looked rusty? Is it all the screws? Can't really tell in teh pictures.
Open the control cavity and take a look inside. If there are signs of corrosion inside there, I would return the guitar. That would indicate a lot of moisture was in the guitar at some point.
i love modern times.....................instead of taking it to the shop and having them switch out or clean, let me make a post to and gather the masses for a burning. The best is the people who start cussing and saying a company sucks.....
Gibson may or not be at fault or it my be the shop.....for all we know, the brand new member who posted this doesn't store or take care of his guitars, so before you light that torch stop and think
here we go again 🍿
it's exactly what he did, he posted here dude. and then read the first replies from a couple of people. lolHaha, wow. There’s no indication that he was going to do anything like what you’re suggesting here. The dude is asking a simple question to which you’re constructing quite the scenario in your head. Might want to take a moment to ponder your reply and ask yourself, “who is the one really holding the torch here?”.
Anyway, no, it’s not normal for a production level Gibson guitar. If it’s multiple screws, you’ll definitely want to pop open the back and check (as someone else suggested). If all is well, you love the guitar, and it’s brand new, I would call Gibson and see if they’ll send you some fresh screws. A few years ago, I bought a brand new LP with a bridge and tailpiece that were already cloudy and tarnished looking, and Gibson were kind enough to send over a brand new set upon my providing pictures of the problem.

but no worries, we'll see more threads like this, of guiytar karens looking for a forum to scream and shout thread..........
it's not the first, won't be the last
he made the post, is what i wrote bro......and then read the replies is what I said, it's not difficult to understand. it's always the same scenario...Did his post change from the time he originally posted it and I read it? Because I’m not seeing it.

person comes on, makes thread asking wtf
one person replies with the usual "WTF, I can't believe it. they suck"
next person comes on and agrees
same story different thread
never said he changed it, i just said it;s the same story, diffetent thread...think you're reaching to reach lolI’m well aware of what you wrote; I can read. Did he change the post or not? That’s not difficult to understand.
If he changed the post, you may have a point. But if the post here is what he originally wrote, then you’re the one being incendiary and definitely raking the guy over the coals for absolutely nothing. As it stands, per what the OP currently states, the guy asked a simple question and nothing he said even slightly resembles what you’re barking at him about.
Which is it? Did he change it or not?

didn't rake anybody over the coals, just saying, we have all seen these threads before
