I'll ask again...


Recommended Posts

I've asked this in various Gibson boards since 2000-------

When did Gibson change the "G" in their headstock name from a script("cursive")  "G" to the one they've been using for the last how many decades?

Gibson's "history"on their website doesn't give any info nor does WIKI.

And I'd like to know why, since I like the way it looks.  [wink]

Transition of script to block if thats what your asking 1947  .  I hope I got your question right.     

 

 

Yep, you got it right.  And thanks to both you and wildbill for the info.  And maybe it's just me(or maybe not) but I kinda like the old "script" logo better.  [wink]

47 was a weird year.  Binding, fingerboard inlay, headstock logo changes.  Even mahogany top  to spruce on some.    It seemed to be a year lack of fon numbers and serial numbers. On some guitars.
