According to my records, Nashville didn't begin building the old style SG's until late '85 / early '86. I believe the guitar in your photo was made in Kalamazoo.@Strings Jr.
Do you know anything about an SG that seems to be a one-off '60s reissue built for Angus Young around 1981?
You can see here, it has the '70s-'80s style long, rounded pickguard tip and other pictures show the thick font, closed b Norlin logo inlay, but obviously it has a tenon cover and the neck is not set in deep, touching the neck pickup like a typical '81, and the switch is not in the '80s location. Bevels also seem deeper and heel looks smaller. Inlays should have been small blocks in '81, but this has trapezoids.
This was the first old style SG built in Nashville with trapezoid inlays and a tenon cover. It was before they were known as the SG 62 Reissue. This was September 9th, 1985.
This was the first "SG 62 Reissue" built. It was built on March 26th, 1986.
