    My 1967 Standard. A couple unfortunate mods but I have all the original parts and am thinking about returning it to stock.

    Thnx. Yeah, I do play her. But not gigging. I bought her a couple of years ago from an old man in the UK. He had owned a couple of vintage SGs. He would not let me buy this one, which he stated was the best looking and sounding SG he ever owned, unless I promised never to gig this baby. So, I promised and since I do take good care of this one.

    But no breaks or repairs, original finish, pg and pickups/electronics untouched

    GREAT player

    You have some interesting crossover features on this SG. The 'i' on the Gibson headstock logo is not dotted like a 69 yet the neck now has the volute for the first time unlike the 69 and very much identifiable with 1970.

    Here's a pic of my 69 Standard that someone 'Customized' into a custom but you can see the same missing dot over the 'i'. I've read in several different publishings that the missing dot in the logo only happened in 69.
    [​IMG] I think this makes your 1970 Custom a very rare bird indeed. It demomstrates features from both the years 69 & 70 and, captures the change and evolution of the SG Custom during what I would guess is late 69 or early 70. What date codes do you have on your pots? If you have one or 2 that read 1970 then there would be little doubt about it being a 1970 but if all 4 date to 69 (which would be possible even if it was made in 1970) it would only add to the mystery surrounding the guitar.

    More than likely it is safe to say 1970 because of the volute and, the headstock veneer was was probably left over old stock that they had to burn through. Being less Customs were made than Standards, it took longer to use up existing stocks, much like a gold PAF could be found on a Custom after 62, it just took longer to go through Custom inventory.

    None the less, it makes your 70 SG Custom very interesting and unique. Nice guitar.
