  1. Are the DiMarzio's any better that the CTS pots or are they much the same. Regards Kim
  2. Thanks for that link. It shows the dimensions of an SG 100. I checked mine over and it is a match. So this "old girl" started out as a 1971 SG 100 and had a major upgrade later on with Tim Shaw pups ( I also confirmed them) later on. A big thank you to everybody for giving me this valuable information and I can now enjoy this instrument a little more. Regards Kim

  4. Hello Chris I have attached a somewhat blurry photo of the pots but they are definitely DiMarzio's. The 250K pot has the number 5639120 and the 500K pot has 563???? as there is some solder over the rest of the numbers. Regards Kim
  5. Hi Thanks for having a look at my SG...something. I also thought that it was an SG 100 however they have a black head stock and this one has a natural timber color. As for the pots they are DiMarzio's with serial number 5639120. DiMarzio have indicated that the number doesn't relate to any dating codes.......... The Volume/Tone plate certainly looks like a SG200. As there is only a six digit serial number I did read in the Blue Book of Guitars that the Kalamazoo plant did not switch over to the eight digit system until 1978 or 79. The pickups are dated September 25 1979. The closest that I have come to identify this "old girl" is that it may be a type of "The SG" from 79 as the head stock is identical. Hard to tell what it is.........at least it plays well.Kim.
  6. Hello I have recently acquired this lovely old SG but am having trouble trying to identify which model it is. The serial number is 612464 and has Made in USA stamped underneath.It has had another pick guard fitted as can be seen in the photos. This serial number suggests that it was made at Kalamazoo in 1979. I would appreciate it very much for any information. Regards Kim
