Ahhhhh, the old late night ebaying... Anyway ended up winning this one and now it's on it's way. Needs a bunch of work but pretty sure it'll be a banger once I'm done. Not sure what the neck pickup is or what exact year it is. My uess is 64 or 65
Dudes pics were pretty weak, I'll get some proper ones when it gets here.

I love old SG's . If the neck joint is pretty solid, and the headstock isn't too bad it will be a cool project.
Fill in the neck PuP cavity, and extra hole and make her aged cream.

Should be here Tuesday, allegedly the neck joint is solid, as well as the headstock.... But you never know what you Will find with a refin. If it's solid and stable its just gonna get plugged, blended in abd a New guard. Gonna keep that super distortion in the dogear cover in it.

You got it. 137 means CTS pots.

'65 was a transitional year. Being an early example, it could have any mix of features; chrome or nickel, 14 or 17 degree HS pitch, wider or narrower nut...

Looks like full width nut, I'll have to sort the angle but I'm guessing it's the 17° its steeper than my 69/70 closer to my historics. Unsure as to whether it has a braz board. No idea how to check or verify that.

Cool score IMO. I'd go to battle getting it back in shape to have it on stage. Nice!
