Early '60s SG Juniors

Recommended Posts

The SG Junior in white was actually the SG TV model, and the finish was called "Cream," though it was referred to as "White" later on.

 

It was introduced in late 1961 with the SG Junior, which was available in Cherry.

 

Neither model seem to have a bound fretboard, according to catalogs, though the SG Special did.

Not mine but I was going to buy one just like it until I found a great deal on a Custom Shop VOS Standard.

 

And I was referring to the bound neck, I know white was a color option, lol.

Your guitar is the first SG junior I have seen with the bound fingerboard. I would say that's not the original board. But I would need closer pictures to tell for sure. To my knowledge bound fingerboards were only available on the upper SG models. But there is the possibility that it could of been done as part of a custom order, as the polaris white is a custom color.
