Is this just a regular run in the beginning of the year or anything special because of the end of an Era or beginning of another? Still in excellent condition .

It does.Beautiful ? Have you had it that long? Thoughts? Sound?
I bought it in March and to tell the truth haven't played it very much. It had been sitting in a shop for at least a couple of months and it just looked so good I made an offer and I was a little surprised it was accepted. It's in such great condition for its age I'm kind of babying it. Soon afterwards I found a '59 reissue that's become my main player.

Not sure what you mean by “end of an Era”. Was there a significant change from 2006 to 2006 in the Standard? I don’t think there was. 2008 was a major revamp of the model, but 2007 was just a continuation (IIRC) of the previous year’s spec.

Typically, back then, the new year models were actually released in the fall of the prior year (like car manufacturers do)… so by January they’d been making 2007 models for a few months.

So… some kind of special end of an era guitar? No. A cool, nice looking guitar? Absolutely! :) (Novel approach to adding a pickguard w/o having to screw holes in the top, too!)

Not an expert, but I thought weight relief was introduced toward the tail end of 2006?

By end of an era I meant from solid bodied.Which is why I am asking. I read 2007 was first year of chambered different than weight relief. Being this was made Jan 3rd, that is the beginning of 2007. If it's no big deal so be it. Thanks to all. ❤️
