    I lost my treasured SG which I had owned for more than 48 years.
    My house was in Australia was burgled in November when I was on Holiday and I lost a few other guitars like a Stat, Telly , Godin etc. The Sg was the best and the one I miss most.
    I will get insurance for it and wish to buy a genuine Vintage SG. A custom shop job will not do.
    My Sg which I bought second hand in England in the late 70's had a 6 digit serial number which is a bit confusing to decipher. The # was 770609 or 770669 not sure(very faint ink marking).
    This suggest its a 57 but SG's came out in the 60's unless this was a special prototype.
    It sounded great with the Chrome Patent pending PUPs and chrome tuners - no vibrola.
    I am looking for a pre 1965 guitar before CBS.
    Can anyone offer one?

    Uhhhh, Gibson and CBS had NOTHING to do with each other.

    I've got a 63 Gibson sg, STD, just recently got back from the luthier the pick-ups and pots are originals and bridge electronics are originals, but the cover and arm are missing, also the tunners are not original and knobs, the neck has been professionally reset due to a hair line crack in the joint,

    That being said I am entertaining offers, please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or concerns
