Is this a fake SG ?


Recommended Posts


I recently purchased this SG and I'm concerned it might be a fake but I'm really not sure....... If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.....

My concern in that the serial number is inked and not stamped, and there is NO Made in the USA stamped.....peghead angle is 17degrees, machine heads are schaller .......

White, fingerboard inlays are rectangular blocks, barrel knobs.

Plays like a dream though !

Hi there,


It looks right to me, only it is not in it's original state...


It was refinished, white is NOT it's original color.

It was refinished over the original serial number and someone wrote the serial number you see over there - it is not original.

Tuners were replaced too.

Pots look OK, 73 if I see clearly.


Looks like a vintage SG, refinished, few non original parts, but still a Gibson SG from the 70's
