Newbie here! I'm interested in a "Hound Dog Deluxe" but I'm not sure if it is us made. Can anyone please help?

The serial number is   D4110860 at the top of the headstock. The logo on the headstock is not "burnt in the wood".

Gibson bought Dobro in 1993. According to a reliable source (former Gibson employee), Dobro had dwindled down to making a handful of instruments and they were housed in a rented former auto body shop. I have a 1993 Hound Dog, no frills. Best Dobro I've ever owned. And I have owned several.  The whole transition to Nashville.... to me, it changed things. The brand eventually ended up on Chinese stuff anyway.... no surprise.  If I had been running things, I would have left Dobro in Huntington Beach. But it's not my company.
