These are now my two as of 12 days ago...
I love my ‘76 SG Standard, and to me Norlins are vintage. I bought a new SG Special in 1972. I am definitely vintage and so is the ‘72 Special, or it would be if I still had it. That’s just my opinionView attachment 48659
1979 SG Exclusive. Wrong tailpiece, but otherwise original. Here with a Sg firebrant bridge pickup. Just put it back to stock wiring.

Burny SG custom (RSG-70). 1989, so maybe not really considered "vintage". Still, 33 years is something.

Sg standard 1977. All stock. Plays like a dream!

Yeah, im a sucker for norlin era SGs, and also block inlays! I tend to play rather downtuned, so the harmonica bridge really gets to do its magic!

It's a good idea to put an @ before a forum members name. That way they will receive a notification. Otherwise, they might not notice.Strangebrew.
What do you remember about your late 1960s SG Custom? I consider these to be like hens' teeth.
Over recent years I've trawled the net out of curiosity and only seen one un-altered example. Mine which I bought twenty years ago from a collector in Havant is a visually unaltered circa 1967 guitar, including its original 'waffle-back' Klusons. However, the middle pickup may be a replacement; it has embossed pat-numbers whereas the others still have the decals. The loom/harness has been altered- can't remember offhand what the selector controls.
It's a shame I can't post pictures of my SGs as I don't have a computer- this is via a concession at my local library. Some are for sale including a '62 Standard with s/w vibrola- issues, but unbroken, either a '62 d/cut slab-body Special, TV yellow or '65 Special narrow-neck cherry. There are pictures of this guitar in Nick Freeth's books.
