Best line to take in bizarre 3bet pot?

Blinds: $0.25/$0.50 (6 Players) BN: $35.16
SB: $65.46
BB: $30.39
UTG: $206.47
MP: $169.71
CO: $78.05 (Hero)
Preflop ($0.75) Hero is CO with 6 A
2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BN folds, SB raises to $5.00, BB folds, Hero calls $3.50
I nearly folded pre, but I had a note on this guy that he's a reg that finds bluffs creatively and previously 3bet 55 from SB vs CO open. Plus we're deeper than 100bb, so I took a flop IP.
Flop ($10.50) 7 8 J
SB checks, Hero checks
I think checking back is standard here with my exact hand, and I think overall my range wants to check, too. But betting here would have kept the sets in my range, and by checking back it capped me a bit.
Turn ($10.50) 7 8 J Q
SB checks, Hero bets $5.75, SB raises to $19.90, Hero calls $14.15
I could've checked back here again, but decided to semi-bluff targeting his hands like 55, 66, 99, TT, and AK. Even though checking back again and bluffing river is possible too, I think putting a bet in here gives me more credibility on the river if I brick and need to bluff. I've got T9s and QJs much more often than he does here, as played. His c/r really confused me. If he's truly as creative a bluffer as my note implies, he could be doing this with hands like JTs, J9s, and 56s. But then again I think bluffs are less likely given how I can easily have a good hand here, and crucially I block his nut FD hands like AcKc which could easily take this line. So that weights him toward sets I guess. I think he'd be overplaying AQ with this line, and AJ makes no sense.
River ($50.30) 7 8 J Q 2
SB bets $40.56 and is all in
Really no option but to fold now, sadly, because I even lose to some of his bluffs like AK and 55.
