    I found this forum searching for any clue about this Vintage SG build I just bought on Ebay. It looks Gibson but then some things dictate otherwise.

    Welcome! And wow, that is a mystery guitar to me at least. Looks nice though! The strangest thing to me is the neckplate because it looks like a set neck and not a Michael (Bolton) and if it is a Michael it's damn nice done in any case. My WILD guess is that it's an Ibanez early 70's because it has nibs but the placement of output jack is not Gibson (but better imho) and lack of Gibson serial etc on the back of the headstock.
    Browsing catalogues from the 70's, briefly, does on the other hand show the output jack to be in the same place as on a Gibson, at least on the ones I see so yea, it's a mystery to me at least. But again, looks damn nice.

    Thanks. I saw it and I couldn't pass it up . The price was reasonable and I love old and odd guitars. Once I have it in my hands, I'll have a better idea of what i'm dealing with and let the shopping begin for parts!

    I got it! I tried to upload a couple new pics, but they were too big and I am not computer savvy in that area.
    But I must say the guitar is pretty cool and its about 90% done.
