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).

Thanks very much for your reply !Would this be how it left the factory ?Cheers B.


Well, at least the configuration is consistent, with it being "stock." However,

whether or not the pickups, or electronic's are original, only the previous owner(s)

could tell you. Might try looking into the control cavity, and seeing what the pot

dates/numbers are. If they seem consistent with 1984 installation, then at least

those are (probably) original.


The pickups could be Gibson's Tim Shaw era "Dirty Fingers?" Not sure, about that,

though. Just a guess.


Good Luck!
