    The guitar in the picture above has some of the characteristics of the '70s tribute: It's got the oversize headstock, and the block inlays. But the one above MAYBE has had its mini hum buckers removed and replaced by P-90s. This is what
    it looked like stock: mine's a 2012 April 17 top@100.jpg

    It's not tricky at all to do this. The P-90 and the mini hum bucker fit in the same routing, plus Gibson supplies
    the steel plate at the bottom of the routing that has screw holes for either P-90 or Mini hum.

    So the pickups are interchangeable. The one illustrated by Papa doesn't look like it ever had a pick guard. AND it's got 24 frets. The SilverBurst '70s tribute above
    has 22 frets, and uses a Tenon Cover.

    So what is the guitar posted by Papa...
    My '70s tribute has no pineapple inlay. Papa's guitar
    says "special" on the TRC, but has block inlays and the pineapple. No binding... 24 frets, no P/G...
    ...a space oddity.

    I know this is an old thread, but how much did these go for new? I'm considering a used one for my first Gibson SG. Never had P90s, either, so that'd be nice for a change.
