  1. probably just a factory screw up and they had to finish the headstock twice for some reason.
  2. Actually, the first and fifth digit are the year second third and fourth are the day f the year it was made. That is a 2020. For a short time from 2015-the beginning of 2019 they switched to the first and second, but when the new line came out in the middle of 2019 Gibson went back the the old format of 1st and 5th.
  3. It is perfectly normal. The serial is stamped into the bare wood, before grain-filler and the nitrocellulose is applied. So you are good to go.
  4. That is a counterfeit, not a replica. It is just a out-and-out fake. Do not buy it, turn the seller into you local law enforcement before they burn someone out of a lot of money.
  5. Just going by the headstock it looks to be authentic, but pictures of the body and neck would be helpful to be certain. It is normal for the Serial Number to be hard to read, because it is stamped before the instrument is sprayed.
  6. If you take the truss rod cover off, you should see a hex head nut which indicates the authenticity. If you remove the truss rod cover, and it takes an Allen wrench, then it is not. Simple as that.
  7. A lot of flying V's had the logo on the truss rod cover. But yeah, pull the pickup and see if it is marked in the cavity, look at the pots see if they are maker. The bridge looks like a mid 70's Gibson bridge that was used on a SG. Is there a Serial number on the back of the head stock?
  8. Why not just swap the tuner buttons to hipshot pearloid keystone buttons.They save you from drilling more holes and you still get the stability of the grovers https://hipshotproducts.com/products/guitar-tuner-buttons?variant=43356140936
  9. No need to check the serial. Counterfeiters use real serial numbers. However, this is an authentic Gibson.
