    Thanks Viper, that's two different guitars though! The one with the removed vibrola is my favourite. Beaten up quite bad, but has the edge on the other.

    IMG_0469.JPG IMG_0471.JPG Hi everybody this is my first post on this forum,

    My name is guillaume and i leave nearby Paris/France (and sorry in advance if my english is not perfect)

    For years i was more a fender guy, but last year , i bought a sg custom reissue 61 from 1992 that i really love, the neck is the easiest neck i have ever played !

    So last saturday ,i have decided to buy a second sg, it is a sg special from 1965, it is not stock but at least i paid a reasonable price, the tuners and bridge are not original, the holes from the original vibrola have been filled, and the guitar has been refin, the re is also a repair at the back of the head near the tuners

    At least, the essential for me is still here : the electronic, pots and pickups are original ! (Pots are from 19 weeks of 65)

    The guitar is wonderful to play, the only inconvénient is the strong buzzzzz if i play it with high gain

    I have a question, do you think the volume/tone control might be original ? They are not the one usually see on this models

    Here is a picture

    and also a picture with her young sister !

    Hi,

    I'm also a first time poster, from Norway.
    Got a hold of this '64 SG Std earlier this year, the exact model I've been wanting for many years now.

    All original except a refret and the switch tip, and the outer tuner rings and the top plate of the volume/tone controls are missing.
    There's also a crack in the neck heel, but it's properly fixed years ago.

    Very nice Guillaume,

    My personal opinion is that P90's don't sound so great with too much gain, they kind of get into that flutes warbling tone which I'm not keen on, and yes you get quite a bit of buzz as they are often pretty microphonic.

    What a great looking pair though!

    That's a stunner too! How bad is the heel crack?

    It's not that bad, and it's solid as a rock.
    Here's a pic (there's a little crack on the other side too, a little smaller than this one):

    My early '65 Standard. All original except maybe a couple saddles (A & D). It even had the original flat-wound strings on it when I got it.

    Nice!

    Looks like you got pots left over from 1964 with the codes 13764XX. That nut appears to be the narrow 1-9/16 width that transitioned in 1965.

    Thanks cg! The nut is actually 1-11/16". All the specs appear to be the same as '64.

    I thought it looked full width 1-11/16 at first. Either way, very nice SG!
