I tried one of my wife's Halloween black lights, and couldn't make it out. If I was motivated enough, I'm sure I could call the Montgomery County police department, and get someone to pull the file from 1977. I had the serial number written down somewhere (the original owner had it on a piece of paper), and now I can't find it. Sad thing is that you can almost make out what the digits are just looking at the guitar.

Thank you very much! I'm not in a hurry to sell it. Ultimately, if it doesn't sell, I'm ok with that too. I had called a local luthier at some point , and asked if it could be restamped and refinished, and it certainly can. At that point, though, I feel like it's less genuine than it is currently. It has good mojo, and has a great story behind it where the good guy actually got his guitar back!

if you ever find out the serial number i would just write it in one of the pup cavitys and let it alone just for information to the next person.....it may just give someone piece of mind, every little bit helps

i got a 71 LP that serial is very faded but readable in bright sunlight at certain angle, prior owner wrote it in cavity as well just to let it be there for the future...

Thanks for the interest, all. Last bump on this one, and it's headed to eBay.

If any of you are on the Norlin Era Les Paul Facebook page, I posted a video of this guitar with its new owner today.
