New here - just received this old Gibson and I don't know what it is


Recommended Posts

Likely a Gibson 70s SJ Deluxe.  Due to its pickguards and block inlays.  From the look of the color of the binding color, it’s headstock ornament, and it’s tuners…it’s likely from approximately‘72-74.   I have an identical guitar like this in my collection.

Yours would have been the very last version of the C&W to come out of Kalamazoo.  The block inlays on the board appeared in 1971 while the ADJ saddle bridge disappeared.  If you want to get more specific as noted, you will have to go by the serial number stamped into the back of the headstock.
