  1. Yeah I tried several sites but since they all mainly use the serial number to identify instruments they all tend to give the same basic info, while I’m more interested in the anomalies of this particular instrument
  2. Yeah it’s the definition of ‘player grade’, the neck is straight and the truss rod seems to work, but it needs a refret more than any guitar I’ve ever seen. Considering the price and condition I’m not too concerned with a genuine restoration, I just want to build it into a cool, playable instrument. Regarding the pedigree, I’m mostly just curious, right now it’s kind of an oddity and like I said there’s some things that don’t make sense. I’ve never seen an SG with trap inlays and no binding, and the neck is really slim. I wonder if someone removed the binding and reshaped the neck, or if
  3. I recently acquired this heavily repaired and modified old SG from a friend for next to nothing. The serial number is 835716 which is apparently either a ‘66 or a ‘69 according to what I can find, but some of the details on it don’t quite fit. The neck has been repaired at least twice at the headstock, and it’s has trapezoid inlays but no binding which is strange, and the heel doesn’t look right to me either, nor does the face of the headstock. The pickups don’t match each other and I think they’re replacements but might still be Gibsons, and the bridge obviously used to be some kind of trem s
  4. The owner is an old friend who knows I spend some of my spare time building and rebuilding guitars and basses. He’s got a japanese jazz bass that needs some parts replaced and a setup so he gave me the guitar in trade for the work and money spent on parts...sort of. Basically he wants $300 (Canadian dollars) for the guitar so I pay for the parts and fix the bass and if that comes to less than the $300 I pay the difference. Like I said, next to nothing.
