First of all Hi 🙋🏼‍♂️ My Name is Peter and I live in central europe. I‘ve been playing guitar for 10 years now. Lately I was GASing gor some SGs 😅 I went on eBay and bought two of them. Kinda crazy I know. The both arrived today. One is a 2015 SGS3, the other a 2007 61 Reissue. But I am not sure which model. The finish looks kinda like faded or worn version, but I couldn’t find anything from that year that matches the guitar.
Any ideas what I just bought?

Edit: Pic upload didnt work… will fix later on PC

Congrats on the SGs! Judging from your description, it sounds like the 2007 61 Reissue could be a Guitar of the Week #35:

Hi, the font on the Headstock is regular "Mother of Pearl" or whatever that is supposed to be, not amber...

Edit: I guess its a Satin Antique Walnut 2007

Welcome to the forum.

Now post up some pictures!

FWIW my 2015 Standard is the Les Paul 100th one, Les Paul Signature and a Les Paul.hologram sticker on the back of the headstock, under the lacquer.

Yes. Looks like a faded 61 reissue. The 2007 Guitar of the week series only made 400 of each edition.

Good find and get ready to enjoy what I consider to be one of Gibson's best necks.
