    Dilemma With a Serial Number

    Hi, I bought a players 60's SG Standard. It was advertised as a possible '63 however I was pretty sure from the photos it was later. I got the guitar and it definitely has a 1 9/16" nut width which narrows it down to 65-66. Now this thing is a definitely a player, it has multiple repairs, cracks, a refin, and nothing for original parts. Definitely not a collectors guitar and I can tell from having it for only a few days, I have no intentions of selling it. However I've said those famous last words many times and there may come a time when I'll move it on. My dilemma is it currently has a stamped 5 digit serial on the guitar which I know couldn't have been the original number. Did someone drop a digit off to make it appear older? Who knows, I don't know what to do about it. Should I remove the serial and have it without one? It looks like the back of the headstock has been sanded a little thinner which explains why there isn't a stamped one. I knew what I was getting into when I bought it (got a great deal whether it was a 63 or 66, which is why I didn't say anything to the seller). I just don't someone else down the line to get possibly scammed. Would it be worth taking the number off? Thanks for reading
