Dear friends,

Does a Gibson SG made in USA with the serial number 92335399 exist? I undestand it could be made in 1995, but... The color of this SG is yellow.

Could you help me to know if it is fake?
Thanks a lot!

Rod

looks ok to me.
the color tho, may not be originally yellow, could very well be white that has aged badly.
so yea, u need to look under the pickguard, cavity etc.

Hiya the serial number seems to decode fine on the guitar dater website and brings back the following details:

Your guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
August 21st, 1995
Production Number: 99

Guitar Dater does not check authenticity of guitars but just decodes serial numbers into meaningful data, to be 100% sure I would send an email to Gibson to ask what that serial number shows in their files, you will need to send photos showing full front and rear of body and ones showing full front and rear of headstock. They usually respond same day or next day latest.

There are plenty of very knowledgeable experts of here who know SGs like the back of their hands and probably even as well as Gibson themselves or better so I am sure you will get lots of good advice on it and what to check for, good luck hope it turns out well for you, it looks very nice by the photos in yellow. If you do get it we like photos :)

Cheers

That's a sweet guitar my friend! Love the yellow. Something I found out to look for from a local Gibson retailer is the binding and frets (if it has binding as yours does). If the end of the frets overlap or hangover the binding its not Gibson. Gibson uses the binding to finish the end of the frets which I imagine is a much more expensive way to finish a neck which is why the copies don't do it. From what I can make out of the pic, yours look AOK!!! Did I mention I love the yellow!!

That's not always true. If there has been a refret, there won't be any fret end binding nubs either. ;)

No "nubs" on my '67 Jr., before or after a re-fret.

There's a 1995 catalog/poster for sale up on eBay...the pic is small and hard to read, but that color was definitely listed as an option.
