Gibson sg special dating

Exceptions: Some high-end models and lap steels from 1939-1940 have been added the letter A, to the prefixes D, E or F.Factory Order numbers with a letter from 1952 to 1961.The SG Special was between the Junior and Standard model and was introduced concurrent with the Junior.It featured two P-90 pickups with either a stoptail bridge or an optional Vibrola.Note: Custom shop guitars are not supported The Gibson Serial Number Decoder currently supports 6 formats from 4 Factories.Gibson has used various methods of numbering from 1900, so it is not simply based on the serial number to identify the year of manufacture..This new function will try to match the serial number against older formats, details required for an exact match are listed in yellow.Please post any comments, particularly bugs in the user feedback section.

The wraparound stoptail bridge has been replaced with Gibson's standard Tune-O-Matic arrangement on the Classic and Special reissues, while the reissue of the Junior retains the original one-piece bridge.(G = Gibson, K = Kalamazoo, W = Recording King (Montgomery Wards).If follows there is a third letter E, it stands for Electric.Most SG Specials (like their Standard counterpart) have a volume and tone knob for each pickup and a 3-way selector switch.From 1983 to 1988, a simpler three-knob model was produced.

Gibson stopped the stamped serial numbers at the end in 1960, although there are a few guitars made in 1961 with a "1" as a prefix.

Sep 23, 2016. For many vintage instruments, determining the date of manufacture involves little more than running the serial number through a reference guide. 1969 SG Custom. Gibson stopped dotting the i in their logo on some of their instruments. Most models get a dotted i again in 1972, with the rest following suit.
