Inherited this... is it authentic?
Looks real, just been refinished during it's lifetime.
That is an interesting looking guitar indeed. Definitely not "collector grade", but hopefully that also means not "collector pricing" either. I don't see anything that says it isn't what it appears to be, Whatever it is, I would definitely clean her up, giver a good player's set up and rock the fool out of it for a reasonable price. I'm getting some serious Mojo off that one.
amazing response thankyou. the guitar shop by my apartment thinks its an unbranded copy. fingers crossed they will authenticate it for me when i pick it up this tuesday
Does it have a control panel in the back?
Unbranded copy.... with a 6 digit serial number in what looks to be the Gibson style font?
Looks like a legit 66-71 SG Junior.
Tuners are not stock.
Should be small white buttons, three on a plate.
Wraparound bridge is installed backwards.
Needs to be rotated 180 degrees.
Check the pot codes.
If original, they will indicate earliest year guitar was built.
Pot Code Format
137 = CTS
YY = Year
WW = Week
Stock tuners on a 1970 SG Junior...
In my humble imagination...a P90 will NEVER steer you wrong...authentic? I wouldn't pay it no mind...it DOES look real "enough"...
If you're looking to play it, definitely do...selling? Listen to the others...it has me drooling ...
Looks like a very cool, and very real, Gibson SG Jr!
Broken headsok an (bad) refin.
1969. The 3-pc neck and lack of a mother of pearl logo inlay or "Made in USA" stamp narrows it down to that year.
Looks legit, just re-finned. Could have had these tuners on it. My '69 Special had these.
The shape of the heel and three piece neck look like a ‘69.
The little step also pushes it toward late '69.
