I still have to pinpoint the exact year. A gibson customer service employee suggests that its a 1966 because of my serial number without the "made in usa" under it.
and if my pots arent original i think itd be pointless to make it vintage? I mean Im looking at vintage 1960's gibson sg's go for 4 to 8 grand depending on quality.
Saw a 1965 pots on ebay for 585.00 dollars.. and im guessing itll cost about a grand to a grand .5 to achieve full vintage. but I also need knobs, tuning pegs, probably the humbuckers, bridge and tail tremelo kit.
then is the question: do i refinish it? that will definitely make it nice looking but will take away the ability to call it vintage.
