    Gibson Boss Collection

    Based on his IG account, looks like he added this Burst to his collection last year after the video was filmed. Anyone know the history of this one? Who owned it before? It's serial # 9-2204. Beautiful color, flame, and patina.

    NGD: 2005 Gibson Custom/Historic SG Standard

    Help Me ID These Stock Gibson Pickups

    I need some help figuring out what these stock Gibson Historic pickups are. I recently bought this 2005 Custom Shop SG Standard. The solder joints are all unbroken so these are the stock PUPs. I have a PDF of the 2004 Custom Shop catalog and it specifies 57 Classics. I also have the 2006...
