Vintage Gibson Serial #'s


Recommended Posts


Hi I am new to this forum, and am a new Vintage Gibson owner.


I purchased a 1960 Lg 3 Serial # R687821


After a little research I discovered that number is actually the last number in the series for that make/model and year of production.


I also discovered the serial numbering system was not as regulated as it is today and wouldn't become so until 1962 and in some cases the serial numbers were duplicated.


Can anyone suggest places, books, websites, links etc... where I could go to get more information on this guitar and/or gibson serial #'s.
