Looking for help with this SG Standard

I am looking at buying the pictured SG. Seller states it a 2012 SG Standard. I'm not familiar with this finish on a standard, was it an option? Was 2012 the year the fret boards could be maple?  Thanks in advance for the help.


They were doing baked maple after the raid. It happened in 2011,  so it sounds about right. I had a baked maple board on one of my guitars.

Thanks. I ended up buying it. The fingerboard is very different than my 61 reissue. Pretty sure it's burnt maple. The finish is natural with nitro. Hard to tell in the pic.

Nice. I had an SG Std, 2 SG Specials and a SG Faded. I liked my Std, but the 2nd Special I owned was my favorite of the 4. They are R'N'R Machines.
