Greetings and salutations all, first time poster, proud new owner of a 1964 SG Junior. Original finish, headstock has never been cracked, original pickguard, P90 and what the previous owner said is the original wraparound, tho the original holes for a short vibrola are there. At some point somebody put Grover kidney bean tuners on it, there's horribly crappy 70s pots and knobs on it, and some maniac drilled holes in it for some sort of different kind of tailpiece, which have been plugged with mahogany. I'd like to restore it back to its original appearance, absolute originality being a moot point since I don't have the original HSC, vibrola, tuners and pots, my question is... do I hunt for period correct 1964 pieces and parts or just go with repros? This is a player, obviously not a museum piece or a case queen. Thanks in advance for your thoughts. PS these are the only pictures I have at the moment, I'll post more as I get the righteous parts on it.
