First of all my apologies, but I'm kinda new to this forum and the world of Gibson (Epiphone were my axes of choice for years). So if I asking a dumb question below, forgive me. Yesterday, I found an interesting listing for a Gibson SG Tribute 2019 on Facebook. The seller claims it's hardly been used and that he didn't modify anything... This is how it came out of the box. It even has the plastic foil on the pickguard. He posted a few pictures and also sent me a picture of the certificate of authenticity. So far so good, you say... However, I do have a few questions about this... When I look for images and specifications of this specific guitar online, I notice that on all other Tribute-guitars of that year, the volume & tone-knobs are different. Also, the toggle-switch doesn't have a round black cover, like this one does... Is that 'normal' or do these kind of differences occur more often? Once again, sorry if this is a dumb question. I just want to make sure I'm not buying a very close counterfeit or a guitar that has been tampered with more than the seller says. Thanks a lot in advance!
