    68’ SG: Legit or Fake?

    I wanna start this out by saying that I’ve done as much research as I can, but I’ve always been a fender guy so I’m a little out of my depth on this stuff. There’s an SG for sale on Craigslist (correction: mid 70s based on the serial number) and it’s a good deal (not enough to be a huge red flag, but enough to raise an eyebrow). I know a few HUGE things to look out for (scarf joints, hex nut) but take a look at the pictures and tell me if y’all have any concerns (the off center “Gibson” logo is my biggest concern). Heads up, the pickups have been replaced and he is including the originals.

    -Thanks guys!

    Yep, that's a 70s SG with some funky pickups. It's otherwise legit.

    Looks like some kind of HB-size P90's or such.

    Its a early 71 SG, not by far a 68.
    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia

    those pickups may be SD FAt CAts.....P-90 type built into a humbucker size.
