From what year was "Made In USA" stamped on headstock??

Hey there -I've been told of an SG special, serial number 92491356 for sale - it's been bashed about a bit though - literally. Two machine heads broken and the body split through fom the lower waist to the controls. It's also been sprayed BRIGHT red.....

 

The serial dates it as 1991, but it DOESN'T say "Made in USA" under the serial number.

 

When was it that Made in USA started to be stamped on - please can anyone help?

 

I'd like to get it and give it a good home but - only if it's the real thing.... [cool]

Yes - right - here are some pics - I've found that it's been put on Ebay - I was originally told about it by a mate.

 

Here are three pics of the headstock, and now the link to it on Ebay.

Would need a lot of work if it IS genuine, but might be worth it... [cool]

It's very good of you to show me these links, and I have read them and understand what the pages say, but the problem remains -

 

 

Should it have "Made in USA" stamped on the headstock under the serial numbers for , what is supposed to be a 1991 SG Special?

 

Is it "real"?

 

Any thoughts please.....

 

[biggrin]

 

P.S. Give a man a fish, and you will feed him for a day,

 

Teach a man to fish & you will feed him for life.

 

Give a man religion, and he will spend a lifetime praying to a fish.....

Good morning men!!

 

It went for £375.02 .

 

Was it genuine then?

 

Well the guy who placed the winning bid must have thought so - good luck to him - seems far too high a price for a battered piece like that.

 

Just off to pray for a lower priced bargain at the altar of the great Codfather.....
