Gibson Hummingbird serial number question

Recommended Posts

I have a Gibson Hummingbird that I purchased used in December 1974.  I was told it was a 1963, but have never been able to cross the serial number.  (See photo)

The numbers are stamped into the headstock as follows:


I understand that the 'MADE IN USA' stamp was begun in 1970, but when I purchased it, the guitar and case showed far more wear than would have been expected for just a few years.  As a matter of fact, when I bought the guitar, the case was falling apart so I ordered another, identical case.

Can anyone help with this one?
