  1. Just want to say thanks for the info. It is helpful.
  2. Thank you. Am I correct on age of guitar? Are there any resources that might help me nail this down?
  3. I have a Gibson ES 175D I am prepping for sale. It is in pretty good condition and I believe it is an early 70s model. The serial number is etched on the headstock is a bit difficult to read but is either 135406 or 136406. (See attached). I was hoping someone might help me nail this down. In addition the guitar is in really excellent condition. Exceptions are that it was used a lot so some belt scratches in the clear coat and some minor scratches here and there as to be expected. A;; parts are original except the pickguard is missing. Any thoughts on optimizing value before selling are welcome. Should I go ahead and find an original pickguard ($400 to $500) or will that not increase value commensurately? Should I go ahead and get the scratches buffed and cleaned off? And advice is welcome. Pics of the guitar can be seen here: https://idg-partners.com/gibson-175/
