    You have to be getting old to have lost a sale to someone buying a Yugo.

    But yes, I strongly advocate buying quality first time around.

    Like I said "in a previous life." :) I've been in the mortgage business for 27 years now. Grew up in the car biz.

    I know it’s a slow day ‘cause I’m really into this thread. I must’ve typed and deleted at least five snarky responses.

    I'm waffling between "snarky" and "persnickety".

    I think I'll settle on sarcasm:

    If the OP didn't know the guitar came with a gig bag for the listed price, then they also don't know about the secret model release of this Silver Sky with one missing screw - it is a limited edition. You call PRS, and they come take away the gig bag...and don't replace it with the hard case!

    You had me until the example of a reliable car was a Pontiac.

    I think all guitars should come with a hard case. And I don't like the SS. Not my thing. So PRS should have made something I wanted.

    On a more serious note, I'd rather have a guitar that plays well and sounds good but is missing a cosmetic piece than a guitar that is perfect cosmetically but needs a setup or worse. If QC is going to drop the ball, a pickguard screw would be my preference.

    I still hate gig bags.

    I do like having one gig bag. I can be pretty sure to find space for it in my car after packing Mrs’s luggage.

    Oh, I bought it a couple weeks after buying an (non PRS) electric that came in a cardboard box.

    You got lucky, now they ship them in a brown paper bag.

    Any guitar that ships in a plain brown wrapper probably needs to be shipped to a pseudonym and be disinfected before use.

    I bought a nice Hamer guitar in a gig bag from Neil Zaza once that came via UPS wrapped in bubble wrap. Ie. No box.

    I had a guitar sent to me that still had that weird tape PRS uses to hold the pickups in or whatever in place during the final assembly time.

    An oddball slips through every now and then.

    I’m sure all will be fine soon.
