I sold my mint 62' to a DEALER for 30k 6 months ago. So does that make my 62' SG the most expensive and desirable? ?

A quick check of the October 15, 1962 price list shows only 2 SG models: the SG-Special at $222.50 and the SG-TV at 157.50. So yeah, I am pretty impressed that you sold a “mint” SG to a dealer for 30K. I am guessing it was the SG-Special. I am always learning new things on this forum.

You guessed wrong. My guitar was a mint SG/Les Paul with PAF's. I never call the SG body shape "Les Pauls" even though they were named that for a few years...

He’s always been very sensitive to these SGs NOT being called Les Pauls ?

Correct as you can see only 2 SG models were offered. The other solid bodies were Les Paul models including the LP junior, Custom and Standard.

Indeed I did. This description is much better as there were 3 Les Paul models with 2 having PAFS, (Although it could still be a Custom).
I never thought SG described a body type as the first SG looked quite different from the later SG body type.
Maybe you can post a picture of your 62 standard as some of these had the cool ebony block.
