But those were only made in the 70s.
Here's another site with pics:
Here's one from 1997 that kind of lines up with your serial number:
Looks like a redo of the 70s model with the control route cover on the back instead of the front.
Post a picture.

1971 to 1974... all built after Gibson put the accountants in charge (alas, not one of their brightest decisions)... all the bean counters were interested in was saving money... thankfully these abominations were discontinued when the accountants all got the bullet after Gibson sales went so low it nearly closed the company down.
Mercifully discontinued in 1972
Introduced late 1972
All discontinued (thankfully) 1974
Although I do believe some were still being shipped in 1979.... they must have found a pile of 'em in a shed or something.
If you want to see something really hideous, find a photo of one with a Bigsby fitted.
Someone who can draw a mathematically precise line between an unwarranted assumption and a foregone conclusion.

In 98 Gibson added a pickguard and painted it in new colors and called it the SG-X
The guitar came in Fireburst and Black
It has a Gibson 500T in the bridge, 24 frets, Coil Tab, and 1 Volume and 1 Tone.
I got one over the summer, got it a gig bag and a Marshall MG15DFX got them both for 100 bucks.
Its great I use my Standard live and use the SG-I for one song in open Eb minor tuning.
