    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.

    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
    137YYWW
    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 legit, just re-finned. Could have had these tuners on it. My '69 Special had these. SG Tuners.jpg

    The little step also pushes it toward late '69.
