Hey folks, any Les Paul experts out there familiar with these oddball '77s serial numbers? I've got a Custom of which I'm trying to ID the actual date of production.
Thanks in advance!!! the Serial number is -
06 210888

(06 corresponds to '77) and pots back this up.

You don't get date of production with the sticker format serial numbers.

And even then, the date stamp on the 8 digit embossed format is not significant in the slightest, its just essentially a random day in the middle of the production of the guitar. The necks are stamped when they are separate and haven't been glued into a body yet, so there is no association of a 'guitar' with that date......just a worker stamping out necks as they roll off the finish sanding station.
