You are NOT helping my GAS at all, sir, not one little bit.
Bless you, boy.
Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. I hope she plays great and sounds good.

The photos were originally posted on this thread.
Do you mean pictures are not original ? Epiphone pictures ? LOL
You should all by now that he doesn't actually own a guitar and just posts random pictures from the internet LOL.
I want to know how that SG got dated and made & sold already as a 2017 model when it is only early September of 2016?
Does somebody have a time portal they are keeping secret?
Now whats really weird is the serial number makes no sense as it technically dates to being made on the 700th day in the year 2010!
Using the Guitar Dater Project site you will get this info back after entering that serial number...
Your guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
on December 1st, 2010
Production Number: 101
Serial Number Breakdown
1 700 0 4 401
So, is this some promotional 'Rule Breaker' when it comes to serialization & "17" gets put in the first 2 digits of the serial number as if to say it is a 2017? Problem with that is it leaves us with no accurate way (when going by the serial number) of knowing when it was really made & may lead one to think it is a fake!
Did I miss something here? And is there a new chapter or addendum to Gibson's serial numbering that I don't know about yet?
King Henry and his folks are living in the future
I can only hope they look like this and don't go crazy on the price. I want one so bad!
Tomorrow my 2017 SG Standard T should arrive. I'm very excited. I wanted an SG with a slim taper neck and a long neck joint so I had to buy one of these immediately. I also read that the binding is rolled which was a huge selling point for me.
When I get it I'll post in case anyone has questions about it.
That is frik'n excellent & exciting news brother!
I'll be looking forward to your post as I'm interested in one myself.
They do look awesome!
Please post a link to Your new guitar thread here so I don't miss it.
I got my 2017 SG Standard T today. I love it.
Its the SG I've been waiting for Gibson to make, mostly because of the neck. I had a 1996 Les Paul Special DC that had my favorite neck ever, and this has the same one.
The rolled binding makes a huge difference. It feels like its been played for 30 years already. It feels like an extension of my body, the way a good guitar should.
I like a fast neck. My 2016 SG Standard T is a little chunky feeling. I might take it to the shop to have them roll the binding on that one too.
The longer neck joint, than a 61 reissue for instance, makes the guitar hang more comfortably on my body. Its balanced better, and even with the heavy Grover locking tuners, it does't feel close to a neck dive at all.
It sounds great, just like its supposed to. No surprises there.
If you like a slimmer neck with traditional string spacing, you'll love it. I like it much better than my 2016 T, recent SG Standards going back to the 90s, or 61 Reissues. A+ Great job Gibson.
1: Guitar (un)dater is notoriously unreliable.
2: Gibson changed serial numbers a couple years back and now they start with the year, aka 17xxx
If the serial number is 17000 then it was produced FOR 2017 but IN 2016.
I was hoping this had the same neck as the 2016 models. I love the look of a small pickguard, but my giant hands don't get along with the skinny necks on the 2013/14 models so well.
wow happy new guitar day!!!
