  1. Does anyone know since what year they started putting the cover in picture?
  2. so I have this brand new SG 2016 (bought online), the intonation was way off right out the box. on the low E I can not get the open string to play the same note as the 12 fret, 12 fret is too sharp no matter what I change. First I tried loosening the truss rod, but it did not have enough effect on the intonation. The only way I could achieve correct intonation was to move the saddle screw all the way down to the bridge, and completely lowering the saddle. Then naturally I get fret buzz and choked notes. Why can't I get the correct intonation?
  3. Thanks for your inputs. added pictures of the headstock Guitar 1 http://i.imgur.com/cFiZFbS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/HxFFlZp.jpg Guitar 2 http://i.imgur.com/xZSxmNj.jpg http://i.imgur.com/GrtoRmX.jpg
  4. Hi, thanks for your detailed response. I will need to closely test their sounds to come up with a decision. Good thing I still have both. I am also thinking the first one is the lesser of 2 evils. FYI I have added a picture of the neck to the first post.
  5. So I bought a SG Faded 2016 T from Amazon and it is supposed to be brand new, however there are the following issues: White, cloudy stain between pickups' polepiece slugs The fretboard is not completely flush with the neck from fret 8 down-- a line can be seen and felt. The black tape around the pickup doesn't seem tightly wound, it looks crushed down a little bit. Intonation is slightly off (12th fret harmonic on some strings is higher than fretted 12th) one of the pickup screw heads is slightly striped the nut is white, while the same models at a brick and mortar dealer are yellow Amazon sent a new replacement, apart from the stripped screw on Guitar 1, the new guitar looks worse! I have never owned a Gibson guitar, is this how they normally ship out their guitars? What is the meaning of this stain on the pickups? Please see pictures for details: Guitar 1 http://i.imgur.com/g7zEMWz.jpg http://i.imgur.com/eqU2qQz.jpg Neck http://i.imgur.com/aS5qJMM.jpg Headstock http://i.imgur.com/cFiZFbS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/HxFFlZp.jpg Guitar 2 http://i.imgur.com/Ai4weTw.jpg http://i.imgur.com/cQOfH2H.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wjQ2XN0.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VJ1Z8Ku.jpg Headstock http://i.imgur.com/xZSxmNj.jpg http://i.imgur.com/GrtoRmX.jpg The only reason I am even considering Amazon is because it was much cheaper than local dealer. I want to make sure these are just cosmetic flaws and not something worse. My local dealer says these are B-Stocks and should be sent back. I'm not 100% sure, since it would be better for him if I buy from him. Something about the serial numbers: Guitar 1 has 2 results according to guitardaterproject.org Your guitar was made at the Bozeman Plant, MT, USA on August 24th, 2010 Production Number: 265 or Nashville Plant, TN, USA in 2016 Production Number: 10926 Guitar 2: Nashville Plant, TN, USA in 2016 Production Number: 4988 Thanks for any input and guidance.
