    Well she arrived. What a beauty! Weighs 6.8 lbs and plays really nice. I didn’t know what to expect as I’ve typically preferred a thicker neck. I love it! Really hard to put down.

    I’d post a pic but apparently the pics are to large

    Use MS Paint to scale them down. I had to do the same to post some photos here.
    Words without photos are meaningless! ;)

    Must have either been a real late ‘17 or real early ‘18, as the two are identical in every way other than the pups.

    Anything is possible. My early 2018 LP Tribute came with a 490R/490T combo (like the 2019 SG Standards), but it was suppose to have the 490R/498T combo. Gibson made it right and sent me out a 498T no charge. I have heard this happening to quite a few of the Tributes that year.

    This. Every new model year starts production around November of the previous year.

    Of the four SG's I have, two are 2013 SG's.

    One is a second production run guitar [ ordered in 2012, store received it in March 2013 ] and the other [ bought in Jan 2014 from same store] is from the last 2013 SG production run.

    Both are incredible guitars and have 57's.

    Some day, I'll post pictures.
