Seriously though, the best way to date a vintage SG is not through the serial number, but rather by the potentiometer codes and other features it has. Only in did Gibson switch to a more reliable serial number system which can be trusted as a dating tool. Even then, you want to have a rough idea of when it was made based on the features first, because they have used several different serial number formats through the years.
It is important to remember that no one feature is the absolute determinant factor in dating, but rather the totality of all features taken into consideration. It is not normal for any other vintage SG to have remarkably low frets. If this is the case, the guitar needs a re-fret. Beware sellers passing off worn out frets as a “Fretless Wonder”. The code on the back of a potentiometer can normally be broken down into three main components: the manufacturer, the year and the week of manufacture.
However, it is important to remember that this date is when the pot was made, which necessarily has to be before the guitar was made. Being produced in large batches, it can be a while before every pot in a batch is installed on a guitar.

Its continually evolving and expanding line of guitars and basses appeals to a broad spectrum of players and diverse musical styles. Its core business practice offers high-quality instruments with professional components at an affordable price. The shop manufactured replacement guitar necks and bodies, complete pickup assemblies, bridges, pickguards, tuners, knobs, potentiometers, and miscellaneous other guitar parts. Eventually, Schecter began supplying parts to notable guitar manufacturers and to Robert Talbot repair shops.
By the late s Schecter offered more than guitar parts, but did not offer any finished instruments. In , Schecter offered, for the first time, its own fully assembled electric guitars. They were considered very high quality and very expensive, and were sold only by twenty retailers across the United States. By , Schecter had reached its custom shop production limit and could no longer meet demand.

Grover Imperial are my favorites on archtops. Very precise and elegant looking. Schaller locking mini tuners on all my Warmoth guitars work great.
Read the current issue of VG. Well, we near the end of the long tale of Hamer USA Guitars, a saga that began in the early s and is today a great success story in American guitardom. For this installment we bring the litany of Hamer guitars up to date…. The Eclipse Model GECS was a new asymmetrical offset double-cutaway design with short horns, the upper somewhat larger and rounded, the lower more pointed, and a rounded lower bout.
The body and glued-in neck were all-mahogany with a black-faced three-and-three Hamer headstock and screened logo. The Eclipse sported two Seymour Duncan mini-humbucking pickups with three-way select, one volume and one tone control. An Eclipse String was also available with the same specs. It had just slightly offset double cutaways with a slightly extended upper horn and a slightly deeper treble cutaway. Otherwise it was similar to the Sunburst.
The body was mahogany with a carved, figured koa top with a glued-in mahogany neck. The Mirage was equipped with three Seymour Duncan single-coil-sized humbuckers all perpendicular to the strings — a Hot Rail at the bridge and two split-rail Vintage Rails. These were controlled by a five-way select and one volume and one tone control. A mini-toggle bypassed the volume control for instant lead mode.

As with a string acoustic, I have harbored a fascination with baritones for quite awhile. Taylor used to make an acoustic bari with the middle D and G strings paired with an octave higher I have fond memories of my prior Peavey Classic 30, but it was too loud and too heavy. I think most of us that have been around here for a while know who can be trusted.
