Help identify this SG from the 70ies

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everybody!

would you be so kind and help me out with your knowledge? Is this guitar all original or is it modified or fake? What is it worth? It is supposed to be a 73/74 Gibson SG (Standard?). The SN says 896588. Thank you all!!

I uploaded the pics on my Google Drive (because of size problems). Here is the Link:

It’s likely a 1973 based on one pot code I could see. I can’t state that it’s 100% original but I also don’t see anything out of place of obviously changed. I won’t comment on value. A quick search of sold 1972-75 SGs on Reverb had a range of anywhere between $700 and $4700.  Sometime within the last few days I saw a 1975 advertised for $3000 or $3500. That was in a dealer’s inventory.
