    Greetings
    would like to buy this SG what appears to be a late 69 early 70 model.

    What Do you guys think?

    It has some feauteres wich are 70 and some are 69.

    There is no volute and no made in USA

    But the heel looks 70.

    Pot dates are 25th week 69


    Cheers

    Those pics (to me anyway) are just fuzzy enough to not be able to make out certain details..

    I could be wrong but there looks to be some type of volute and possible 3 piece neck?

    This is 100% a '70..that blocky logo (WITH a dotted i) says it all.

    NO '69 about it (except pots)

    Was curious about the beveling... 70 seems to have less deep bevels

    No prob! Honestly surprised that it wasn't sold to you as a '68...

    Bevels did start to get a lil shallower around then for sure..til nada in mid 71.

    Sweet one man!! Get it!
