someone asked me to value their SG - 1974?

I'm no expert but does this look like a 74 SG with the original tremelo (quite rare?)
Value?? I figured about €1200 at least (about $1500?)

If I had some cash, I'd be interested...

not rare at all. $1500 high end...

I read the tremelo ones were quite rare... but that's why I said I am guesstimating!
Still this one looks tidy and original, so I'll tell them $1500 tops.

I recently traded my 76 SG (non-tremelo) for a mint 2007 J-45 which has a value of about $1,400 (according to recent eBay sales). I would think that the 74 with tremelo should go for at least $1,500 if not a bit more.

The only thing really going for it is the full size buckers. Most of ones with the trem are Specials with mini-hums. Still think $1500 tops but if it sounds good.... Check if it has the smaller 1 9/16ths width nut, too. That's what bugs me the most about mine.

I dig this guitar. Change the bridge and knobs and tuners and you could have a cheap Mick Taylor SG....wrong color but still cool.

Typical SG standard of that era. I agree with others - $1500 high end.
