Serial number

Recommended Posts

February 29th, 1996.

 

The first and fifth digits are the year. Digits 2, 3 and 4 (060) are the day of the year. Since 1996 was a leap year, the 60th day was February 29th. The 534 is the production number. Anything over 300 (since 1990) indicates it was built at the Nashville plant.

I'd sent Gibson an email prior to posting here yesterday. It was built on the 60th day of '96. What I wasn't aware of was the figured maple made it a "Plus" They also sent this.

 

The Honey Burst is mine.
