So my dads friend gave me his uncles guitar old SG. It has a volute and I know for sure that it's from 1970,1971, or 1972. But I don't know if it's a Standard, Pro, Deluxe, Special, etc, or what parts are original or not. Any ideas?

Looks like some kind of Gibson SG, but I'm no Gibson guru- I couldn't tell you which model or even fake vs real.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

paruwimy guitar has the harmonica bridge and the only one that has the harmonica bridge is the SG professional but it has different pickups and inlays. It's like my guitar is a mixture between the deluxe and professional.

The bridge might have been swapped during the last 40 years.....
or the specs might have been changed 3 days aftrer the catalog was printed....

Gibson did a lot of strange things in the early 70's with not only the SG's but with most of their guitars. It's entirely possible that they used that bridge on both the Deluxe and Professional at some point. Or like the guy above me said, someone just swapped the bridge.
