Hi all,

Can anyone help date this refin SG jnr? The seller has it listed as from the 60s. Does the dog ear p90 and brass plate in the control cavity make it mid-60s? The only visible pot date is 1992. The serial number seems to be 551336 which brings up mid-50s or mid-70s which can’t be right!

I'd like to see under the pick guard. What's he asking?

I'm not trusting it.

Small guard and small control cavity is from 1961-65.
1961-63 has Les Paul script on headstock.
1965, the nut width was changed from 1-11/16 to 1-9/16.
1966 was change to batwing and large control cavity.

1965-66 were transitional years where features from each year overlapped.

Looks like a 1965 SG Junior.
