So I'm still confused, Are SG-400s supposed to have that "custom shop" label? If so I'm worried about the possible originality of mine as it falls in that "2006 - 2017" period... unless mine is part of that 1% that is. My SG is May 2008 stamped one, serial number checks out in a lookup.
Photos of my guitar: https://www.mediafire.com/view/1y2y49rh4vrb2ll/20220726_174820.jpg/file (ignore the strap button on the top horn and 11-hole pickguard, it started as a 5-hole black pickguard 4 ply and a back of neck strap button.)
I have confirmed under a blacklight that the guitar finish age matches up throughout the entire guitar, besides the little dents in it, and as the serial is ink stamped that would mean if the entire guitar was refinished then the serial was stamped on again.
The only thing that's fake is the concept of a Custom Shop Epi. Gibson would never let that happen.So I'm still confused, Are SG-400s supposed to have that "custom shop" label?
