    1976 Stamped Serial Number with 77 format

    That is is pre 1977. If you read my posting, it’s a 76 with 77 serial number style. Here is a 77, same font.

    1976 Stamped Serial Number with 77 format

    Yes it is factory stamping. I’ve owned over 40 Norlin era Gibson’s. This is the 3rd 70’s Special I’ve owned. I’ve seen many serial numbers with white in them, mostly from polish/wax compound

    I’ve owned dozens of Norlins and this is a first for me. July of ‘76 Les Paul Special (55 reissue but with tom bridge) and it has a stamped serial number with the 1977 format. Anyone else seen this? Also just USA no Made In

    Gibson Serial Number Ledgers and Red Bobbins on LP Deluxe?

    I know it’s all original, solder was never touched on the cover or the lead, original patent sticker as well. I did find someone else on the other lp forum said they opened up their mini from ‘71 and it was pink , I guess mine is pink/red as well. If you look at the magnet , it does have an edge...

    Gibson Serial Number Ledgers and Red Bobbins on LP Deluxe?

    The guitar has been sitting for 30 years, was full of old sweat (you can even seen the green corrosion on the humbucker cover) the bridge is awful, dried blood, bunch of dings, bottom strap button bashed in to body, it's 100% original except for the tuners witch were pat pending grovers. The...

    Gibson Serial Number Ledgers and Red Bobbins on LP Deluxe?

    Why wouldn't I think they would keep records? Most companies do. Is it too crazy to assume they would have at the line a person writing down the serial number, regular production run or custom order? Obviously no one was thinking of collecting down the road, but anything with a serial number for...

    Gibson Serial Number Ledgers and Red Bobbins on LP Deluxe?

    Hi, I was wondering if there are any ledgers with serial numbers from '73-'74? I know I saw some with totals of Les Pauls shipped in what colors, but is there any further record on a Les Paul in the norlin era pertaining to the serial number? Such as a custom order? I have a '73 Deluxe with a...

    Trying to ID my old Les Paul (Only have one photo of it)

    I would '74 as (someone correct me if I'm wrong), from your picture it looks like the Gibson Schaller Deluxe Tuners on it, not the double ring Kluson's witch I believe they stopped in '73. Sweet axe. Keep searching for a '73-'74 Deluxe, that top should be easy to identify if it wasn't stripped...
