I know things get a bit hazy in the early '70s, so wanted to check here and see if anybody can pin it down. Best.

A pic of the control cavity with a close up of the volume and tone pots..... those numbers on the back of those pots can narrow it done to a few months.... the number 137xx... the xx will indicate the year of the pot.

Of course the pots need to be original ;)

My first thought was 1974 but can't really back it up with facts

cool SG!!

but i really can't think of a time I've ever seen a Grover back cover come off like that... does it still work? i.e., it took an impact?

I thought the same thing.... they all look like they were leaking.... and cracked around the rim.
