Serial numbers are not the only thing that will give you a year for your Gibson. From 1975-1977 the number is typically found on a decal on the back of the headstock.This should be an 8 digit number that can be dated by the 1st and 2nd digits as follows: 99 = 1975 00= 1976 06 = 1977 Earlier models had an ink stamped serial number or no serial number at all, these are much more difficult to date.Right: The "inked on" serial number on this 1959 Les Paul Junior has no space between the "9" digit (year) and the rest of the numbers.This happened only in 1955, 1956, 19 when production required a number above "9999", thus occupying the space. The 1964 number on the left is still a "pressed in" number, though gibson has inked the impression to make it more readable (they started doing this about 1963 or 1964, when serial numbers went to six digits).Ranking numbers 500-999 continued to indicate Nashville production through 1989.Since 1989, all Gibson acoustics are built in Bozeman, MT and all Gibson electrics are built in Nashville or Memphis.
The 1964 to 1969 orange labels are identical, except for the added text "union made".
Hey Zach, I have a Gibson Les Paul I’m trying to identify.
