Hello!
I have had this bass for 20 years, but never did anything with it. Played it quite a bit, trying to see if I liked short scale or not.
It has a funky paint job and recently I have been getting interested in vintage basses and was thinking about restoring this one.
The serial number (004487) shows that it is a 1967 SG-0, but I'm not sure what colors it was originally available in.
I know people modify then a lot, so it's hard to tell on the Internet what is real.
I'm sure the current paint job is not original, but it has the original bridge and other hardware.
The only thing missing is the plate on the back. There was a loose cap with the electronics which I have saved.
I checked under the pick guard and there is no lacquer finish under the paint, just bare mahogany.
Please let me know if you know how to determine what the original color was or at least what colors were offered in 67.
Thanks!
