    My 07 has an 03-05 style COA. Were there variations within some years?

    Always. It could also be a replacement COA. But nothing is set in stone.

    Not as a habit. It was rather hit and miss it seems.

    Is the black folder. The current one can be seen all over the internet. But it would be nice to see a Gold 50th anniversary R9 COA.

    nice thread.thanks for posting .
    i am glad gibson has changed to the smaller booklet type
    certificate though .It fits in the case's compartment and there is
    less chance of losing it or misplacing it.
    They should have did this from the start.

    Weird. I didn't get one with my 2002 68 Custom reissue.... and was told that they didn't print them in 02 :hmm:

    I wonder if a person can write Gibson and order a reprint for a fee?
