    Here's my guess:

    It has the same controls as the SG 200, and 250 (Both made '71-'72 according to the site) so I'm gonna guess that someone took one of those somewhere along the way and routed it for humbuckers and made a pickguard and refinished it. I guess removing the pickguard might shed some light on this but that's just my guess.

    EDIT: I just noticed there look to be some holes between the tailpiece and bridge which leads me to believe a little bit more in my theory.

    jup a modded SG200 or SG250 sounds about right. the FB and controls would suggest that too, and the MADE IN USE in the headstock would put it in the 70's so I agree with Rooney.

    The only difference I can come up with from the information on the site is that the 200 came in Walnut and Cherry finishes while the 250 came in a Cherry Sunburst.
