1930s L-00 , Date of manufacture?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'd like to find out the date of manufacture for my vintage L-00. I suspect its between 1936-1938, but was hoping someone might have access to the original sales ledger. 🙂

There is a four digit code on the headstock : 1349  in addition to a Made in the USA engraving

A sticker shows it's "made in the USA by Gibson, Inc" Kalamazoo, Mich.

Many thanks for your help.

Sanj

The FON of 1349 suggests 1934. The made in USA engraving and sticker may mean it was an export model. The neck should have 14 frets clear of the body, plain white script "Gibson" logo (not "the Gibson").

Should be a small sunburst on the top.

Photos would be helpful.
