Gibson SG!

I am trying to buy a Gibson Sg from a guy. He does not know which model it is. The serial number is 02212505. Is there way to find out the model and other details based on this? Any reply would be really appreciated. Thanks James

In 1977, Gibson introduced the serialization method that is in practice today. This updated system utilizes an impressed eight digit numbering scheme that covers both serializing and dating functions. The pattern is as follows:

YDDDYPPP
YY is the production year
DDD is the day of the year
PPP is the plant designation and/or instrument rank.

That should give you the date it was built. As for exact model, I don't know.
