I bought a Gibson SG Standard with Coil-Splitting Electric Guitar Classic White.

Some of these were supposed to have an Ebony Fretboard.

I've never had a guitar with an Ebony fretboard before.

How can I tell if this one has Ebony?

The specs say rosewood, & that's probably what you have. I've never heard anything about this model coming with ebony fingerboards, but it would be easy enough to tell. Ebony boards are very dark (almost jet black), and have super tight grain with almost no visible pores, while rosewood has a reddish-brown hue, looser grain and visible pores throughout.

Thanks.

In that case it IS a Rosewood Frett board.

I was reading this article and I guess I was just hoping it was:

Actually, sites like 123 and MF are known for copy/paste specs, so that "Fingerboard: Rosewood" in the specs could be a mistake.

 

Take a closeup of the fretboard, like 2 or 3 frets, and post it - myself and plenty of other members can identify the fretboard wood for you.

 

BTW, congrats on very fine SG. B)

 

 

This one from fleaBay has rosewood even though the listed spec says ebony - http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIBSON-SG-STANDARD-CLASSIC-WHITE-W-COIL-SPLITTING-2011-/290581622146

I have the same guitar but i went with the silver burst instead of the white. i had to send 2 back to get one with out defects. but i will say they are nice.

 

there was a white sg a few years back that came with a ebony fret board but these ones we own do not.

 

how do you like the burstbucker pick ups.?

I have a 1969 Standard (since new)and the pickups that came in that were total crap.

I put a dual sound Dimarzio in it 30 years ago and also built a 50 watt Marshall and customized it for the pick-up.

I will tell you that these Burstbuckers kick a*s so much that I am going to have to go into the amp and take some of the gain out of the stage 2 preamp.

Yes they are serious.

Every 2011 model I have seen has had the rosewood fretboard, 2010s like mine had ebony (at least I never saw another white SG last year with a RW board).

Again, the 2010 model had ebony boards. I'll try to upload a pic later on.
