also the cavity
That would be my guess since they are not Lawrence PC board type. They look like my 86.. pat # no stamp.. brass screws.. my pickups sound fantastic.. enjoy that one..!!
If you haven't bought it yet and the price is reasonable.. please buy it and give it a good home.. I love mine.. ultra thin neck action is 3/64.. plays like butter
he wants 1800 and he's throwing in a chainsaw case...one thing though: the tuners have been changes to grovers
Not sure if the chainsaw was original back then.. I bought mine from a local shop in 1990 as the owners buddy said it would not stay in tune.. $325 back then and he threw in a 1970 gibson case from the back room.. I put shallers on mine and did some nut polishing..and it stays in tune.. kept those originals.. 1800 might be pushing it unless she is in great shape.. although I see no sense in pricing today in this market.. if those are shaws and she plays well.. it will sound great.. mine is very resonant..
$1,800 is a bit much IMO, since that's exactly what a brand new '61 Standard goes for, and the new ones are more accurate reissues. The chainsaw case came with it, so I wouldn't consider that a bonus so much as being expected. Luckily the Grovers didn't require routing so you can swap back to the original Schaller-made Kluson style tuners if you want. I'd probably offer more like $1,500.
The pickups are Shaws, for sure.
Hi all I’ve been following this for a year since my first post. Incredible update. The guy I sold it to never sold it and For my 40th my wife and parents found and bought it my 89 back! After scouring this forum for a year and going over my guitar I believe it to be a 62’ reissue. Pics below. I’ll probably restore the hardware. I played it hard as a teenager/early 20s.
Circuit Board pickups and pots date to the last week of 1988. It's an SG-62, no question. Congrats!
Oh wow. Always kind of suspected as a kid but didn’t have the resources to confirm. Thank you!
I should probably switch out the knobs yeah?
Yes, new top hat knobs will be perfect, look at Philadelphia Luthier Tools, vintage correct black reflector knobs with a lightly aged look : https://www.philadelphialuthiertool...nobs-black-with-silver-reflector-us-set-of-2/
Ordered! Thank you!
