There's always exceptions to the rule. Note the open "b" and "o" on the 1970 SG Standard above. Pots were original with 1970 codes. No Made in USA stamp or volute either.

True, I have seen a few early 1970 builds with the older logo style. Gibson didn't really change features on January 1st of a new year.

In this case though, the heel rules that out because it was changed to a stepped style in late 1969, like this:
