Re: What Kind of SG do I Have?

on the back of the headstock there are serial numbers stamped in the wood. these numbers tell you things about the guitar.
i think either the blue book gitar site has info on that, or gibson does. actually i think gibson has a link that explains the numbers for various guitars.

my SG has numbers something like this:

7xxx9xxx

the first digit is for 7o's i think? the 9 is for '79.

i can't remember all the differences, and sometimes the numbers meant something different too, so you'd do best to look it up. it would be at www.gibson.com i think.
