    I bought my 2017 in October of 2016 when they released them. I have to say, it has become my favorite. I hardly play my Les Pauls now. Gibson hit a home run with the 2017 SG Standard T.

    I could not bring myself to purchase the 2016 SG Standard T, as it had the same P-UP's as the 2016 SG Special Faded T (which I did buy and got for half the price of the Standard T) the 490 R & T which are fine P-Up's but the difference between the two guitars tone was ZERO when I plugged them into the same FENDER amp, side by side, in a comparison to see which one to purchase.The '16 SG Standard came with a GIG-BAG too, ICFBI !! WHAT? So I bought the 2016 SG Special Faded and seeing as I spent less than half the amount of $ on the Special,$543... I upgraded it w/a Bigbsy B7 some Chrome P-UP covers and its quite the BAD-A$ li'l axe,and it became my every day player...and I do really love the guitar, BUT MY SG STANDARD was still not in my arsenal.......

    BUT, now that the 2017 SG STANDARD T has arrived, THE WAIT IS OVER....and I am ECSTATIC the 2017 SG STANDARD T is the guitar I have waited for:Slim 60's profile Neck,BUILT-FOR-SPEED, LOCKING CHROMED KIDNEY SHAPED (18:1 Ratio)GROVER TUNING MACHINES are the smoothest tuners I have ever touched, '57 Classic & '57 Classic + P-UP's KICK ***, the Angel-Wing pickguard is the style of the Original 1961 SG (yes,I know, Les Paul), and the KILLER TONE on the guitar is JUST AWESOME and the SUSTAIN IS FOR MILES ...........AND HARD SHELL CASE is BACK too.....


    So the wait for my SG STANDARD T is finally over and the 2017 SG STANDARD T 'BLACK BEAUTY' that I got, I could not be happier with....it took GIBSON quite some time to get this guitar to market BUT I AM GAD I WAITED..The disastrous MIN-ETUNE & G-FARCE issue's from 2016-thru 2015 were just not hookin me and took me out of the market and last years model was,IMO, A FLOP. BUT GIBSON HAVE HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD WITH THIS 2017 SG STANDARD T.....too bad I can't get a picture of mine into this message, IT IS BAD-A$, the guitar I have waited so long for finally arrived,I TRIED to upload a picture but no.........

    in 2014, Gibson started putting the 1st two digits of the serial as the year, and the rest of the number is the production number.

    Hey everyone,
    first time Gibson owner here as I purchased this LPJ 120th anniversary edition the other day 2nd hand. Hoping I got a decent deal on it ($300). I've always wanted a Les Paul but didnt want to pay the dollars associated with some of the high end models. Can anyone tell me some info regarding this model, dont understand the serial number process. From what I have learnt is that the body serial number.jpg may be built in 2010??
    this thing sounds fantastic so I'm hoping it checks out ok...
    cheers all!

    that is only true for Gibson, before 2014, at which time they changed it to the first two digits of the serial for the year.
