I always figured the screws face in the direction of whether your right or left handed, and what is easier for intonating the guitar.
Have to look up the Shaw numbers after I get home this weekend. The ink stamp on the second photo looks like it might be a Shaw. As for the...
Hope you're enjoying some time to bond with it.

I have a '68 SG Junior with a headstock repair that is fine. The first repair was a hack job, but lasted over 30 years. Had it done correctly...
