  1. One other variance is "SG" on the truss rod cover that can only be found in the Musician's Friend demo video. Strangely when the guitar was in stock at Musician's Friend, "SG" was not in any of the photos. Rather, the truss rod cover shown on the website was the typical blank. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/gibson-sg-neck-through-12-string-limited-run-electric-guitar
  2. Rolling Stones return to tour https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/rolling-stones-return-to-stage-tour-after-mick-jagger-mends-511618461.html They may be getting old, but they're like an old friend. It's good to have them back.
  3. Yesterday June 18th was Paul McCartney's 77th birthday. There is a nice article on Epiphone's website. http://www.epiphone.com/News/Features/News/2019/Happy-Birthday-Paul-McCartney!.aspx I still remember the Beatles first appearance on Ed Sullivan. Even then, Paul was my favorite. The Beatles started my love of guitars. Wishing Paul all the best and many more!

    Reverb is owned by Chicago Music Exchange, a very reputable dealer.
  5. It's About Time While I haven't seen the video, I'm glad that Gibson is becoming more protective. When imitators make illegal duplicates of not only the shape but the logo as well, that is outright fraud. Gibson owes it to its customers to protect its reputation; and yes, Gibson is an iconic brand. I own many Fenders, Gibsons, and Rickenbacker, but Gibson is my favorite.
  6. Correction: I came across a 2017 Vintage Sunburst with a white toggle-switch cap that sold over 1 year ago on Reverb. It appears that both "black" and "white" caps were used for both 2016 and 2017. Rather than the 2017's being a custom run, I believe they are part of the original "75 unit per color" limited run. Only Gibson knows for sure, and they're not telling.
  7. Disappeared from Wildwood As usual, these guitars disappear quite fast. It is already gone from Wildwood not long after this posting. However, a cached version of their website still shows the features of the 2017 SG 12-String Neck-Through. https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:qk3dcCcpmAsJ:https://wildwoodguitars.com/product/170025373/2017-gibson-sg-standard-12-string/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
  8. I've reached out to Gibson's customer service for confirmation of my observations concerning the SG 12-String Neck-Through, but never got a reply. My goal is to document the variances noted on this beautiful instrument. On the Gibson website, the guitar is listed as a 2016 limited run (75 unit per color in Cherry or Vintage Sunburst). http://legacy.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2016/USA/SG-12-String-Neck-Through-Limited.aspx However, there exist some with 2017 serial numbers. One such 2017 is currently on sale at Wildwood Guitars. https://wildwoodguitars.com/product/170025373/2017-gibson-sg-standard-12-string/ From what I've seen, per the inspection cards these 2017 models were built in October 2016. The rear of the headstock simply shows the 2017 serial number and "Made In USA" (without the additional "2016 Model" as found on 2016 serial numbers). Further, all 2017 models (and some 2016) have black toggle-switch caps. The Gibson website only shows a white cap. It would be interesting to know the number that were produced with each of these variances. This should be easily determined since so few were made. Considering the premium price tag, Gibson owes this information to purchasers.
  9. I love the vanilla smell. That and the baby picture on the workbench are what sets Gibson apart from other brands and supports its premium reputation. A definitive explanation for the vanilla smell can be found on the "everythingSG" forum, posted by "koaguilds" on Dec 8, 2016. "I worked for TKL's Cedar Creek Custom Case Shoppe here in Oilville, Virginia and I can attest it's an additive to the glue used to manufacture cases in order to mask the toxic smell of the lining adhesive. TKL in Canada is the sole provider of Gibson's cases and does the same. A lot of nice theories here but if you've ever worked for TKL you would know. Many of those cheaper Chinese cases do not mask the adhesive's smell and you can tell instantly when you open the case what it's like without said additive." http://www.everythingsg.com/threads/whats-that-heavenly-smell.31885/page-2
