I'm forced to consider selling my Burny SG. I believe it is an '84...but how do you date them?


EDIT: Also, what's the going price? It's naturally recliced and no museum piece by any stretch. A good amount of chips dings, tarnish, etc, but sounds amazing.

A few more pics will do the trick:
- close up of the pots
- closeup of the headstock
- pickup cavity shots

I'll do that...although I'm pretty sure I replaced the pots.

A shame, the pots are the no1 identifier. Kept them somewhere?

No such luck. I installed new CTS pots and OD caps. Don't have the originals.





Hope this helps. I'll take pics of the pickup cavities soon.

I have no reason to doubt it's a 1984 model, but it would be nice to confirm.

The split crown appeared around -87 if I remember correctly.
I haven't got energy to find out the exact year but sometime around -87.
