Whilst checking information for another post, I cross referred to Tony Bacon “The SG Guitar Book” regarding the date for the introduction of the SG Standard model which was available throughout the 1990’s up to 2012 (batwing pickguard). I bought mine in 1991 from my local Gibson Dealer. It was the first one I’d ever seen. The Dealer told me that this was a completely new version of the SG Standard and this particular guitar was from the first batch to arrive in the UK. However, the SG Guitar Book refers to this iteration of the SG Standard as the “fourth version 1988-current (although mention is made of small pickguards from 2013). I think the author has completely missed out a version. I recall seeing an SG Standard c.1988 featuring a Norlin style body/neck similar to the 1972 style, but with a lower edge/side-mounted jack socket and a repositioned pickup selector switch. I’m sure I’ve seen them mentioned/pictured here on ETSG. Looking at “Guitar History Volume 2 – Gibson SG” by John Bulli, the author describes a similar guitar as the fourth major revision of the SG Standard, with a widened fingerboard featuring block fret marker inlays, this version of the Standard coming out in July 1980. He then goes on to state that towards the end of 1995 or early ’96 the Standard was revised again: “Kluson tuners with large chrome-plated keys were used, the truss rod cover was marked ”SG” in white and the old style pearl trapezoids……… were inlaid from the third fret………… Patent Applied For Humbuckings (sic) and a Tune-O-Matic/stop tailpiece combination were installed……. Bulli concludes that everything else remained as per the July 1980 version. Actual PAF Humbuckers??? I think that actually Tony Bacon has missed 2 versions. I would suggest that the latter of these two revisions was available for the period covering the Henry J. takeover and up to the appearance of the batwinged Standard I bought in ’91, which might of course have appeared a little earlier. Anyone got any views on this? What versions followed the 2013 and where are we at now?
