    Hi there,

    I have an offer to buy a SG Special which is said to be built in 1965. Everything is right, as far as I can assess. Small Pickguard, Big Knobs, Hardware, Neck Joint etc. What puzzles me, is the serial number which is #900XXX which rather indicates a 1968-1969. I know, that the spread of serials in that era of Gibson is quite wide, but I have never seen a 1965 SG with a 900xxx serial. I have to admit, I haven't seen the pot stamps yet, which may reveal the truth. Maybe it is one of the last small pickguard ones from 1967...?
    Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    Christian
