I just received my dad's Gibson ES 150  guitar from my older brother.  It has been its case since my dad died in 1968. He was the only owner.  I see stamped on the inside of it the number 4488 25. I assume that references the year it was manufactured.  Anyone have any idea what year it is. I know he played it for many years.  It has trapezoid inlays.  I don't think anything was ever done to it, and I know it's been in its original case for the past 51 years.

My sources have that FON as mid-1950. It should have trapezoid fretboard inlays and a bound fretboard.

That model was discontinued in 1956.

It's great to have a vintage guitar with a known family history.
