A new customer of mine and I started chatting guitars when he saw pic of my LP's..... He just sent me this pic of his SG... Said he bought it brand new in what he believes to be 1970. Has literally Never spent a night out of the case. I'm going to treat him like Royalty every time he sets foot in my shop !!! ( stated his son doesn't play :hmm::fingersx: )

I would need to see the heel but I think that is a '66 or earlier. The later ones had the big guard..

Man, that's clean! Looks like a 1962-1965, but would need to see the heel to attempt to narrow it further.

He ought to check that bridge for cracks -- looks like it's got some bow to it b/w the studs and it'd be a shame for it to gouge up the top if it fails in spectacular fashion (or flops around loose in the case, following an unnoticed failure).
