    Found this in a pawnshop a few years back. Sounds great but I don't play it much because of the narrow freatboard. I think it's one of the later ones because of the bridge. Was all stock when I found it except missing pickguard and original case. It now sports a custom design pickguard plus locking tuners and new nut that corrects tuning issues. Old parts and repro original pickguard kept with guitar in 'California Girl' case.

    Pole pieces in the center tell me they are P-90's.

    Well, wait a minute. Now I'm not so sure...

    Wanna sell it? I love skinny necks.

    Oh come on, those are P90's! I think all the "Pro" models had them.

    I prefer thin necks as well.

    Those are P90 in whats called "goof rings". Gib made those rings to cover route defects in P90 and minihum equipped guitars. Not really common in creme color, they are absolutely rare in black.

    i dont think these are actually Goof rings on this axe. the goof rings found on LPs were exactly as you stated, to hide crap workmanship, but they had no height adjusters like these in this SG do.
    I summise they are actually pickup rings in the normal sense.
