1969 SG Custom Cavity Plate

Recommended Posts

I am almost finished now with the restoration of my 1969 SG Custom. The guitar had been routed quite badly for some electronics in the cavity control area, so I had that filled back in. Unfortunately the luthier decided to fill it in according to the specs of the earlier, '63 style, more thin trapezoid looking than the '69 original style. He said he had to do it this way to make sure it will be structurally good, and can reroute it if needed to the correct size and shape for that particular year. To give you an idea of the routing, this is what it looked like before:


I'm wondering since this guitar has had so many mods already if I should have him reroute it again or just leave it with the '63 style cavity plate? I don't think I want to try to sell this guitar as I doubt it has any real value, but in case I do decide to sell I don't want that issue to be a problem. Obviously the guitar will function fine with the earlier routing on it. Thanks.
