I bought this SG about 10 years ago. It plays like a dream and has an awesome sound, but due to my curent financial situation I am considering selling it. I was just looking for some more information on it and a general value. This guitar was played not hung on a wall and looked at. It has one broken tone pot that I never got around to replacing and a good bit of wear. Serial number 175136 is pressed into the headstock with a 2 above it. It also has had a crack repair to the neck/headstock. It has block inlays on the fretboard.

Thanks.

It's a factory second with a headstock repair and a broken pot/ possible missing knob. $500.00 would be a good sale for you. If it were mine I'd sell the case seperate since it's not original to the era and you'd probably get more for it seperately. Hope this helps.
