Hi all, I'm checking out a '67 SG reissue(P90 guitar) and I'm wondering if all '07 '67 reissues were guitar of the week models?

can you tell by the serial number? 026378405

 

thanks

 

Hi 63ac30,

 

Are you sure of the serial? A 0 instead of 8 in the 6th digit woudl be much more Gibson USA. Digit 6 is our batch number, usually you see a 0 or a 1 there with Gibson USA guitars made between 2005 and today.

 

What you say sounds like week 37 of the gotw 2007 program. Those were made as a limited run of no more than 400 pieces. Please mail 4 pictures (full front/back and front/back of the headstock, max 2MB total please) to service@gibson.com if you want us to take a closer look.

Hi there, indeed, it's a 0, not an 8. I took a chance and purchased the guitar. Should be here in a few days.

 

Thanks!

So the SG arrived safe and sound on Monday, beautiful condition. Along with the original case and all the hang tags. It sounds fantastic through the old ac30. It's quickly become my fave guitar and it's the most comfortable.

Best $800 I've ever spent, period!
