    Got a 72/73, that is my number 1! I got rid of my Paul custom after getting this baby, and haven't missed it.

    Damn I love it!

    I’m hoping to find one of those or a deluxe.

    Love me some harmonica bridges!

    Wow, only the 20th week. That puts it in May '73. Typically, there's an 8 week lead time from the pots being produced to being installed on a guitar. I would assume a little longer here, though. Still, that makes it surprisingly early for an Ebony fretboard. You could have one of the earliest examples.

    My friend has the exact same 73' he got in high school back in the early 80's from Chuck Levin's outside of DC. Definitely the best playing SG I've ever encountered.

    They are usually bevel freaks and anti harmonica bridge-ites.
