.
The serial number won't tell you much beyond 1971-1973.

Some of the members can identify the year from some good photos of the guitar.

Post some pics - good focus - no angles - well lit - a straight overhead shot of the whole guitar, a shot of the front of the headstock, and a shot of the back of the headstock that includes the top end of the neck area.

Get an account on a picture hosting, they're free, like Photobucket - http://wwww.photobucket.com/ - Upload your photos there. Copy the "Direct link" from Photobucket into the "Insert image" tool on the Post editor's toolbar here on the forum. Here's directions - http://forum.gibson....to-post-photos/

If the words "MADE IN USA" appear below the serial number it would be from between 1970-1972.
