Hi,
Can anyone inform me about my guitar's age and value?
I was told it is a 1969 Gibson SG.
The serial # is stamped on the back of the headstock.
It is either 652584 or 52584, not sure if the 1rst # is a 6 or a scratch.
It is all original and in great shape. Brownish in color.

Thanks so much.

Pictures would be nice. Does it say "Made in USA" on the back of the headstock?

post some pics if possible. Sounds like an early 70's model, but with serial # info as sparse as it is from that time, photos are the only way to get close to definitive information.
