"Batwing SGs" did they have nickel or chrome?

Postby C_corie on Sat Dec 24, 2016 10:19 pm

Did the original late 60s early 1970/71 Gibson SG guitars have all nickel or all chrome hardware? Was there a period where it transitioned?

Also side question- is there anyway to install a lyre style trem on something like the 2016 SG T without leaving holes?

My SG is an early '71 and it's all chrome hardware.

Chrome. Transition was in '65.
