Help me date older J50


Recommended Posts

I have an older J50. Man I got it from was almost certain it was a 1958. But as I went to verify I faced a dizzying number of serial number contradictions. The guitar has round shoulders. So it is pre 69. It does NOT have an adjustable bridge, but I know some owners changed that. If it is the original bridge the 58 date looks more possible. But the serial number makes no sense: 823276. Photos attached. No red sticker inside soundhole, long gone. Serial number is clear and impressed on back of headstock. Nothing else, no "made in USA" or anything else.


I appreciate your thoughts.
