  1. Hi Everyone, Looking at the 2019 SG Standard 1961 (with Vibrola) and I cant seem to figure out the differences from a reissue 1965 that cost more than twice that of the 1961 version. Can anyone wxplain what the differences are between the new 1961 and the vintage reissues that cost more?
  2. Hi All, Would a replacement pick guard bracket for a 1990's Casino be the same for a Gibson Les Paul? I need to find a nickel bracket for my inbound Casino and seem to only see Gibson pick guard brackets listed for the Les Pauls. They appear identical, but cannot confirm without dimensions. Pic below of a standard Eppi/Gibson LP bracket. Thanks
  3. Thanks for the quick response. My gut feeling is this guitar is a 1990 model, but Im more curious why it shows a match to a 1960 model in the Serial Number registry. I wonder if the serial numbers were duplicated when they changed to factories.
  4. Hi Everyone, I just purchased a MIJ Casino that was believed to be made in 1990 at the Terada plant. However when I run the serial number through an online SN decoder, it returns 2 production years - one from 1960 Kalamazoo and one from 1990. The SN on the orange oval label does no contain a space after the 3rd digit which suggests it may be a 1960 model. I dont believe this to be a 60s model as the truss rod cover has 3 screws instead of 2 and Im not sure if the 60s Casinos had the Orange Oval SN sticker inside the F hole. I have attached photos of the SN label, SN decoded results etc Any held helping me understand how to decode the SN would be very helpful. Thanks
