    This was touched on in another thread, but not really discussed.

    It was said that Gibson doesn't publish production numbers so no one can know for sure. However, would anyone care to give an educated guess. How many LPs are made in a year? How many LP Customs? How many LP Historics? How many SGs? How many guitars in total are produced in a year?

    Well, Gibson USA has the capability of making over 700 guitars per day.
    Why else would they need a batch number in the serial numbers? :hmm:
    That's all Gibsons, not just LPs.

    Gibson Custom, I'd say 6,000 - 8,000 guitars per year. Just a guess.
