    I have one too, and the S/N is unlike any others I've seen so far. I've only seen one picture on this thread with the same knobs too, so not exactly sure when mine was made. From the Guitar Dater site the S/N decodes as this:
    Your guitar was made at the
    Samick Plant, Korea
    on January, 1987,1997
    or 2007
    Production Number: 51
    So, it indicates that it is a '97, but that S/N is unlike any other '97 S/N's that are mentioned here.

    Just purchased an Epiphone SG Junior P90 - this guitar is a gem. The person I bought it from had it listed as a 1995 MIK model....after doing some research I found this post and it seems that production on these were from 1997-2000?. He was still certain in was from '95 and made in Korea. Bought it as it was in really good condition from the pictures and once it arrived, the set up was great :dude:

    I spent the last few days on a google voyage to find the differences in P90 G-310 Junior models as mine came with no serial number, a possible neck plate replacement (maybe knobs as well) and with updated tuners. Some of these differences have been mentioned in this thread already.

    - Tone and Volume knobs placement differ on most models
    - 7 or 8 screws on the pick guard
    - Noticed different sizes in cavity covers. Some small, to medium-large. 4 screws, 5 screws
    - Nut color, some are black others are white
    - Some with no serial number engraviings

    I did find two models online that were made in Korea. One from 1997 and the other one as late as 2001 both had similar knob placement, nut, & cavity cover. Pics of my purchase on the other model references are attached.

    Verdict for my model ? Epiphone SG Junior P90 awesomeness. Year 1997-2001.
    Hope this helps

    I've been thinking about taking the P90 plunge more and more lately, and I've heard tell the single pupped SG Jr has a tone that a double pupped SG just can't match, and might be due to the lack of neck pup magnet pull on the strings. Harumph. Why do guitars cost money? Why is space always limited? Why so difficult?!

    Answering my own question, around 6lbs. The one I bought (a 2019 not G-310 or P90 one) is 5lbs 12oz.
