Just found this while sniffing around the net. Has nibs, what looks to be an ebony board but it's a string through body and the controls are out to lunch altogether.

Is this a Gibson?

Gibson SG X?

Edit: I lied to you, it's probably an SG Z/SG 90 Double without the neck pickup.

It's a Gibson SG 90 Single. There is also an SG 90 Double that adds a single coil P/u on the pickguard.

Pretty sad shape but it is genuine!

Here's a picture of the double, I couldn't find the other.

The one I posted has nibs, does that make it a higher end model?

Great little guitars.I haven't seen one around in awhile. You used to be able to find those things for great prices. 24 frets is an added bonus as well IMO.

Pretty cool SG - the single anyway. It's got the Jimi Hendrix custom fret inlays which is neat. First seen on Hendrix's custom made Flying V.

I didn't even notice that. Even cooler IMO. I've never seen one with binding. I've only seen white ones and green (almost pelham blue) ones. Didn't they make this model with a steinberger trem on it?

I may be wrong but they look like 'Trini Lopez' split diamond inlays and they date back further than the Hendrix V.
