    Not the color so much but the model is fairly rare, they were only made for two years from 1987-1988, and likely in lower numbers than the Standard and SG-62 (which the Elite is based on). That said, there was no strict production limit.

    The color is actually called "Metallic Sunset". Yours is in great shape; most have faded to a more orangey shade by now. More info on the Elite here:

    This is a rare SG with active electronics, the battery is under the pickguard. This model was made in white too,
