This is a lighter version of the SG otherwise similar to the 2000 but without the brass sustain plate Made from 1983 to around 1985. It has a flatter body.
This is an SG1300 with a trem bridge and a locking nut, but for some reason I don't understand it only has 1 volume and 1 tone control. This was made in December 1983 until 1984
Another trem version of the 1300 with some construction differences, this guitar is black and black again. Similar trem to the T and a locking nut. Produced from December 1984 to 1985
Just a 24 fret version of the 1300 scale remains 628mms produced December 1983 to 1985
Don't see a huge number of these for sale but there have been a few on Ebay in the last few years.
