Holy Grail! That is awesome! That must sound like honey butter. Man-o-man!

And that amp! It look minty. A sweet duo and an heirloom to treasure. Nice going grandpa!

Killer rigs, guys... Congrats!

I´m looking for a cool LP style guitar... (P90s welcome too). Shoot me a line if you have something to offer! :)

An old Gibson,,SG? Not sure on the year, anyone?
I'd guess it at early to mid 70's but can't do better than that.

Okay, thank you. I have had it for 30 years. Bought it from my now guitar player in 1984 for 200.00

You can narrow the time by checking the date codes on the pots assuming they haven't been changed. Here's a start on how to date a pot: http://home.provide.net/~cfh/pots.html . I'll take a shot at the model and year, it appears the pickups are single coil p-90s but can't be sure with my old eyes. If I had to make a guess, I'd say it's an SG Pro from around '72. I welcome any correction to that hunch.

Here is my custom Fender Esquire - started out as a 80s Japanese Telecaster - upgraded with a Guitar Works Esquire prewired pickup, an eBay scratch plate and a Callaham custom bridge

Nice guitar! What are the chances of seeing two folks posting early 70's SGs with mini humbuckers? Nice Gretschs!
