    Just got this walnut beauty home, minimal volute, no dot over i and
    no "made in..".

    Only thing not original is pickups, it has a set of Lollars that sounds amazing.

    Yes, '69...more like mid year-ish. Customs got it first, earlier in '69.
    I don't how many times I've had to break someone's heart to tell them their Walnut '71 SG wasn't a '68..:laugh2:

    I'm really liking the nylon saddles, sets it apart from my other humbucker guitars.
    The pickus are Lollar high-wound p.a.f's by the way ...

    Awesome SG.

    Did you by any chance get it in Sweden? I saw a Swedish ad a while ago with a guitar that looked just like this one.

    indeed i did, i saw it on "ljudbojen" and knew that the seller is a nice guy from a previous deal...so i snagged it !!

    surprised how long it was for sale with no takers though, priced to sell and all.

    i'm really happy with it, feels like a keeper ! (but don't they all;))

    nice guitar man! By chance has anyone seen a 3 Pickup SG Custom but with the neck & middle reversed? Seen one earlier and it look strange with the PUPS backwards?
