  1. Ok...got it sorted out. Sent photos and pot codes to Gibson support. He was real helpful. WIth this info he found my serial number in the shipping ledger archive (not public) and determined that my SG Special shipped on 3/14/69. this is huge...puts the value much higher than it would be if it were a 1972 as I had previously believed. Thanks every one who helped.
  2. I.m have a few photos..but I cannot see how to post them here...help?...also, I looked inside on the pots and found: on one side TX1158 500k A1 and on the other 1376850 Can anyone help?
  3. Could anyone offer some help in dating my SG Special. Serial number is 551293...stamped on the upper back of the headstock. No other markings. I bought it from a kid in 1974 who said it was a 1972......I never questioned it all these years, but now I think it may be older. The Blue Book of Electric Guitars...6th Edition indicates that it is a 1966 since the serial number is between 550000 and 556910. But looking at Gibson Electric Serialization...taken from Blue Book of Electric Guitars...11th Edition...it has 540796 - 545009 as 1969 and then jumps to 555000 - 556909 as 1966. there is not a range that covers my serial number of 551293. Perhaps either the 6th or 11th edition has a typo. Any ideas anyone? thanks chuck
