    Real or Fake 70's SG?

    I appears to be authentic-Id say its a '73 or so-the non beveled cutaways, paddle head, wide bridge and logo pups date it to '71-73. The lack of serial number is due to the poor refinish job-that guitar has been extensively sanded and the Gibson branded bigsby removed.....

    Help with Custom SG

    Interesting neck joint on that one...looks like its been sanded down or something-theres no "step"....the body looks like its been "re countoured" to look like a 60's ......nice guitar, but I think its had some "beautification"....hopefully that third pickup is a...

    Which SG is this?

    Actually , these Pro's are kinda rare as most of them suffered catastrophic decapitations due to the weak neck joint (the extra route for the p90's takes a lot of the support away from an already poorly designed neck joint). These guitars were really the ONLY choice back in the early 70's for a...

    Which SG is this?

    1971-73 PRO.....looks like it has been been refinished, but these are awesome guitars. A LOT of them didnt survive because the oversized P-90 route makes for a very delicate neck joint......This guitar would have had a gibson branded bigsby type trem on it (they all had 'em)...if you look close...

    My GOLD Raw Power and old

    I think I found a solution....this medallion was kicking around in the tool box for a while...its about the size of a quarter and completely smooth on the back-I used some "glue dots" from the craft store to attach it-and yes, I left the plastic on the guard so its not a permanent mod...

    Prop Reamer for enlarging holes for tuner peg holes.

    I always use a fine toothed rattail file to enlarge the holes-you have much more control...first use a tap tap to bevel the edge of the hole to avoid splinters..

    Yep, the serial number starts with a "CS" and then 5 digits-unlike the typical production serial number
