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

I remember you posting this a while back . great work in putting it together and great it was made a sticky so it's there for everyone to find fast and easy.

"But it would be nice to see a Gold 50th anniversary R9 COA. " I'll get mine out tomorrow and post some New pictures of it if you want. That's easy .
Thanks

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?
