My first SG. I forget but I think it was a 69 or 70. It was stolen from my house over 30 years ago and I still miss it. :(

With that pickguard, it's a '65, at the latest! Your's has the small pickguard ('61-65), and 6-screw version, which was added

in '64! '61-63 had a 4 screw small pickguards! In 1966, they changed the neck heel and joint, for "added strength and stability," and added

the larger "Batwing" pickguard, as well. So, your's was even more "vintage" that you thought! [biggrin] Sorry, to hear that it was stolen!! [cursing][crying]

Here's mine - it is a '61 Reissue that was a Guitar of the Week back in '04. I added a pair of Bare Knuckle Nantucket P90's and a Bigsby B3 with a Towner USA tension bar and hinge plate adapter (I love Bigsbys!).

My main guitar!

Killer! Love the Bigsbys too, especially the look of a B3 on an SG.

Current crop:

 

SG Special Pewter with ebony board (I changed the guard and knobs to black), SG 60s Tribute (crazy good, especially for the money), SGX with Ebony Board (I have a black guard for this but one of the screws has a stripped head and I can't get it out.)

61 Reissue
