    Well, this is a new one. #nowiveseeneverything and boy is this one a doozy. A customer contacted us after purchasing this Epiphone Caballero acoustic saying that a few days after he took it home, the headstock spontaneously broke. I was skeptical to say the least. That is until the guitar was brought in and I got to see it in person. 
Either someone goofed at the factory, or this entire run of guitars had a serious design flaw.
There’s more paint on the back of this neck than there is wood between the truss rod cavity and the neck profile. 
Just wanted to share this little tidbit with everyone. 
I think I may have the first verified case of “man I didn’t even do anything to it, it just broke on it’s own” that’s actually legitimate.
