    Gibson informed me this serial number belongs to a 2006 Custom Historic 62 Reissue

    It was only made for a year as a limited run by Guitar Center, there are 200 in existence!

    Stock grovers
    ABR1 stoptail
    Classic 57’s
    Larger neck profile

    The only other one I can find online from this run is from Italy for 4700 so the new price is 3400 net to me after shipping, I’ll eat the fees as it is dead mint

    This run is absolutely killer.

    GC got the best out of gibson with this run. I got a play a few and they were all top notch.

    I used to own one of these. Can't remember if it was a 2005 or 2006. It had 57 classics and I had heard that the pickups changed to BBs in 2006, but I cannot verify that.

    Tied for the best guitar I've ever owned, and I've owned a few. Every thing was right with it. And I sold it - D'OH!!!! Fortunately, the guitar that tied it for the best, I still have:D

    Your price is in the ballpark. I recently (within the past 6-8 mo) saw one on GC online used for $2500, and that was the low end. High end was $4k. For a mint example, you are not fall off target.

    Do you have the weight on it? Any neck dive with the grovers? I wish wish wish I could just pull the trigger on this thing. These are the best Gibson custom shop SGs ever made, in my opinion. I owned a 2007 VOS SG just because I missed the sound of that '62 RI so much because it was perfect, and that guitar was a joke compared to the '62 RI.

    I have a 2006 Custom Shop SG but not this limited edition. When I was buying that I did some research on 2006 ones and so I've seen this one and read up on it. I think the idea was that Guitar Center wanted it that way and the reason they rationalized was that lots of old SGs got updtated to Grovers in the late '60s and they wanted to reflect that (although without the left over exposed drill holes from the klusons). Basically they gave the guitars a little bit of a back story to go along with the aged look. I used to have a snapshot I found of the original Guitar Center listing but I can't find it anymore. But I believe that was what it said about the grovers.

    on my SG-62 in the 90's the flavor of the day was Schaller as they were lighter.. i still have the original klusons, but the schallers sure helped the tuning stability as well as smoothing the nut slots a bit better..

    Weight is around 7lb, there’s 0 neck dive, extremely comfortable carve and amazi sustain and sound. This ones got the 57 classics instead of the BB’s and it’s dream, only selling to buy back a 1966 SG Custom I had that I finally tracked down 10 years later!

    Are you sure you want to do that? It's never as you remember it, and that will disappoint you more than a new guitar you have to get used to.

    Believe me, it’s the one that got away. I would never sell this one unless to get that one back, and that’s exactly why it’s on the chopping block!
