This popped up locally and I'm wondering if someone might care to lend a hand getting a positive ID on it? I would love to grab it, I have been interested in getting an SG standard for a while now.


The posting here contains the serial number 034750661, says it is an 05. Here are this images:

According to the serial it is an 05, and is an SG Standard. I think 750 is a good price.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, yeah I was able to date it. I guess Iím wondering if anyone sees any red flags in terms of authenticity. I was a little concerned by what appears to be some yellowing of the neck binding, which from my research may or may not be a concern.

The yellowing is normal when you play them a lot. Just normal aging. The binding on one of my Les Pauls is turning pink.
