about Polaris white '61-'63 "Les Paul" SG junior

Recommended Posts

Hi,I recently bought a "'63" SG junior in factory polaris white. After close inspection, I came to the conclusion it is a '62 - the slant bridge holes have been moved to fit a later mold 3+3 bridge, the thin headstock shape is a '61-'62, the headstock serial is '62 and so are the pots serial numbers. Wonderfull guitar, a real screamer.

 

BUT: no "Les Paul junior" written on the headstock. So I searched the net for every white '61-'63 SG junior pics I could find and found out that none has the "Les Paul junior" written on the headstock. Is it a well known fact?
