and the pickguard isn't one I've ever seen on a Gibson, but I'm no expert. The switches could just be some mods that some owner threw on their at some point. Why don't you just try playing the guitar and testing them out.

Humbucker placement looks dodgy to me, too close to each other, ruins the aesthetics in my opinion.

i don't think sgs are usually bolt on necks

+1, the only "legit" SGs i've seen with bolt on necks are the epiphone SG special and G310.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Not real. It's got a BOLT ON neck; that should give it away from the start.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Looks like a Reverend Daredevil to me......
And there's no way this is legit. You shouldn't be able to take the neck off.

First thing I noticed. It's most likely fake.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

that is no epi or gibson i have ever seen.
pup spacing too close
pickguard
switchs
tom to tail piece.
and yes the neck.
#16
A lot of imports had those switches you're talking about. They are a 2 way slide switch, one controls the neck pickup, the other controls the bridge pickup. Also the original Fender Mustangs and Jaguars had those. I'm not sure if the repro Mustangs have them or not...


Back on subject...
That isn't a Gibson. The bolt-on neck gives that away. And those switches tell me that it was made sometime in the mid 50's to late 60's.

Seeing as the SG didn't come out until 61, I really doubt mid 50s since I am sure there wasn't a rip off before the real deal came out.

Late 60's is the earliest I would put on this guitar

aha, you got enough money there for an sg special if you sell it.
Digital Distribution sucks.
