I just got this 1976 SG Standard a few days ago. I am trying to relive a crucial moment in time. My first real guitar (a Gibson) was a 1972 SG Standard in cherry finish that I bought new that year. This '76 is all original except for the switch ring which came off of a 1994 Les Paul Studio. I have an original early 70's era poker chip on order. The pots on this guitar date to October, 1975.

I love those big blocky SG's. I have an 85 which is pretty much just like yours, but with the switch back above the neck pickup controls.
Super low frets though.....At some point I'll have to do a re-fret as its not the most comfortable thing to play.

Are those t-tops, or did yours get the Tarbacks like mine??

Tar backs. Not much you can do with the low frets when the wear. Lucky that mine still have life left.
