    If it had the custom headstock I would have a few ideas. But with the holy I can’t narrow it down this evening.

    ABR-1
    Ebony
    Gold hats
    Gold hardware

    no idea on year off the top of my head

    Difficult to say without further information.
    But the ebony fretboard makes me think it could be a 2012 SG Standard, which has received some „homemade custom shop“ such as:
    • Gold hardware
    • White pickguard
    • ABR bridge conversion
    • Gibson gold top hat knobs
    I cannot imagine that this SG is still in the original condition... Well, just my 2 cents.

    Special run? Good counterfeit?

    It’s obviously an SG Standard.

    The salesman tell me that the bridge is a Faber ABRN 59 with a conversion kit.

    The neck profile is C medium.

    The bound neck with trapezoids and crown inlay on the headstock indicates it's an SG Standard.

    Not sure what else about it needs to be identified.

    Year?
    Exclusive or Limited Run?
    Type of fingerboard?

    It's still an SG Standard regardless of the color of the finish, hardware, knobs, etc. Perhaps you were asking for those specific details about this particular guitar and not so much the model name?

    2011/2012. SG Standard Exclusive Bullion Gold. I remember these exclusives. 400 made, mostly came in the heavier Costa Rican made tkl style Gibson cases. Gold speed knobs were on all from the factory. It was a Sam Ash run. From what I've seen, some came with a cream poker chip and others with a black one. I'm wondering if there were two runs of this because one clearly had the baked maple board and the other either ebony or rosewood. The poker chips might differentiate this. I do know for sure that one batch had the baked maple board...some of those appeared as black as ebony.

    the OP now seems to be trolling... perhaps a visi
    ya it was cream...and was deduced to be a modded SG that was previously owned by a forumer here...
    now a gold one has been posted...wonder if the OP is a troll...
