Look up reference books.
The link posted above only deals with instruments built post-1975 and is therefore irrelevant here.

Yours probably dates to 1971.

Gibson serial numbers from the early '70s are notoriously difficult to pin down but, unusually, two of my books on Gibson guitars both agree and give '71 as the date for a six-digit serial starting 736XXX. It might possibly be from a year either side but if you say it's a '71 you are probably correct.
