Guitar Dater Project won't tell you if it's real, or not, just when and where it was made... in most cases. There are some things it can't handle.

Simply checking a serial number with Gibson yields just about the same result, becuase real numbers are showing up on fakes. Gibson needs photos and the serial# for a proper ID.

Guitar Dater is a just one tool you can use to see if the serial number might be valid. Then, having a look at the guitar or photos, if you know what to look for, is also useful. Of course, there are those who use pics of real Gibsons to sell fake guitars - the ol' swap-a-roo. It's brutal.
