You are correct about the SG Original.
Technically the SG Original is an SG Standard.
The neck and headstock markings indicate the model.
Bound neck with trapezoids.
Crown inlay, headstock logo as inlay.
It should be named SG Standard '63 with Maestro Vibrola.
1961-62 had Sideways Vibrola.
1963 was the first year of the Maestro Vibrola.
Right again ! and it sure looks like one. AAMOF when I bought my '19 SG 'Original' w/MAESTRO I thought I had bought...... a Standard and I did not know the name attached to the guitar till a year after I bought it I looked at the enclosed 'ID Card' that came with the guitar. U kno, I'm pretty sure GIBSON USA would not even care that the 'Original' really cant be called an 'Original' due to the Neck Joint being at the 19th fret, lol. IDK the exact year it was changed from 22nd to 19th but it was b4 the Batwings were issued, IIRC. (BIG IF THERE).
