    You might try reaching out to a Mod and asking them to delete the tread..
    (Or wait for someone to probably report it to them because its in the wrong section..)

    Just from looking at the photos.
    If I had it in my hands I might change my mind … but I doubt it.

    Just 45+ years experience with vintage guitars, including Gibson made Epiphones [my first good guitar was a c.1964 Texan … still have it].

    That doesn't mean I'm right. It's just what I believe.

    I want to believe its factory. I just can't prove it.
    There are a lot of SG Jrs and few Firebird Is with paint like mine.
    The black fret markers look original to me using a magnifying glass.
    Also you are not first to tell me its not. Either way its a keeper!

    And for me, vintage guitars are my living and my lifestyle.
    But, I do not consider myself an expert. Just experienced.



    BTW: Were affected by Michael?

    Hope your safe.
