Hi Folks,
I visited a close friend that I haven't seen in a while and he's quite ill and in need of liquidating some stuff. A couple years back, he bought a brand new neck that was sold to him as a mid 70's SG neck, supposedly from Gibson as a "Luthier" neck, intended for someone looking to repair a broken unit. It is totally unfinished and even the binding has not yet been scraped/leveled. I know what "I" think it is, but would appreciate some thoughts from some experts before sharing those thoughts here and telling him how bad he got hosed! It does appear to actually be a genuine Gibson neck, but from 1991, not mid 70's.

Thanks To All For Any Help,
Gene

You are correct. 90's SG neck.

70s would probably also have a volute and a much shorter serial number.

No Gibson neck made from the late 60s until 1981 ever came without a volute. Sorry, your friend got taken for a ride. Still, looks like a decent neck just the same.
