1984 Gibson SG

Recommended Posts

Posted Today, 10:30 PM

 

Hi , I bought this 1984 SG on Ebay back in November 2009 ( serial number 81784512 ) and would like to find out more about it ? It has 2 pick ups and 3 controls.

I posted at the time but didn't have any photos.

cheers Brian (Scotland).

It's an SG Special, probably. The pickguard isn't right that I remember, but I could be wrong.

+1. It looks to be a SG Special with a pickguard added(they didn't come with one at the time).

Thanks very much to both of you ! there isn't much gets passed you guys ! I took the strings off last night and removed the scratch plate and it looks like you're spot on.

Is there any way it could have left Gibson Iike this or has it been done by an owner at a later stage ? as the quality of finish is very high, cheers Brian

Just to clarify my reason for asking if the scratch plate could have been fitted at the time of manufacture. There is a slight ridge in the lacquer ( which doesn't polish out ) the exact shape of the scratch plate, it's as though the lacquer wasn't totally set when the scratch plate was fitted.I'd appreciate your thoughts ? Cheers Brian.

Gibson would've buffed it before the guard was fitted. I assume the lacquer has to be pretty dry to withstand that. Not sure what could cause a ridge. I also assume that guard was not stock and not put on until that guitar was sold.
