gibson hummingbird

got a lead on a vintage 1970s gibson hummingbird, serial number 623336. i called Gibson and they say it is an early 70's model, problem is, I want a 1971 model, year I was born. I tried guitar dater project and it lists it as a early 70s model as well. any other way to confirm what year it is? any input would be appreciated,

thanks...

The 70's are kind of weird with dating Gibson,s. 70's Norlin era acoustics are not known for great tone OR collectability. Just to let you know!

I have an early 70,s J-100 however, thats sounds marvelous! I can call it a '71 and ask $1900 for it. Interested?

actually I have played it and it sounded good. Just because it is a norlin doesn't mean it sucks. I got a smoking deal on it too, but no one, including Gibson can state with 100% certainty it is a 1971. i don't believe I am the only one who likes vintage stuff who likes to have at least one piece from the birthyear.

it is a natural not sunburst guitar...
