Hope these pics come thru.
The guitar is all original. Came in original case. Pickups,pots, tuners, nut, nylon saddles It’s all there. Great sounding guitar. Perfect profile on the neck.
What’s going on with the crack around the tone control to the bridge pup and output jack?
It appears that a cable with straight plug was connected to the output jack while the guitar was on a stand and someone stepped on it.
Yep. It’s fixed and works sounds and plays just fine.
That's a nice guitar. Enjoy.
A beauty! Enjoy!!!
Interesting, the top bevel actually looks deeper on the '67.
Very nice, I love this croco finish
'67 was a good year for SG's... about those knobs... are those really original? Mine came with silver smooth reflectors. I know they're original because I bought it in '68. See next post. All original, including the switch tip, which strangely hasn't turned amber; Except: one of the knobs (the one that has no text on it) which fell off and was lost, and replaced with an OEM Gibson in the late '60s, but all they had were unlabeled replacements at that time. And the brass saddles (still have the original nylon saddles).
Accoustically, the loudest (electric) guitar I own.
Yep, that's the '67 bevel
BTW, what make/model is that banjo sitting in the chair?
Mid-way through 1967 was when they switched from Reflectors like yours to his Witch Hats: https://solidguitar.fandom.com/wiki/SG_Standard#1966.E2.80.931971
It’s a 1930 RB-3 mastertone. And yes the guitar is all original expect it didn’t come with a poker chip I added an old one period correct. And the switch tip is an old one I added. The original is split in half.
Was this guitar's control cavity broken completely off? If so, yours and mine are siblings!
no. Just cracked many years ago. And fixed back. The work is not the best or it wouldn’t be visable.
