The first digit is the year and the other numbers are production numbers.This system is fairly reliable for guitars made from 1953 to 1961.The first 5 numbers remain the same, the last 3 numbers will remain the same.The only difference is the addition of this batch indicator.The pattern is as follows: is the production year is the day of the year is the plant designation and/or instrument rank.Plant designations are as follows: 001-499 = Kalamazoo 500-999 = Nashville (300-999 from 1990-present) 001-299 = Bozeman, Montana (acoustics only starting 1989) * Kalamazoo numbers were discontinued in 1984.But the serial number on a Gibson can tell you when the guitar was made.With that information, you can determine its rarity and, ultimately, its worth. For acoustic instruments, the serial number is typically located inside the sound hole at the neck joint or on a piece of paper glued inside the guitar and visible through the sound hole.
For information on FON numbers a copy of The Blue Book of Electric Guitars by Zachary R. For the most accurate identification contact Gibson.
The age of a Gibson guitar, along with the physical condition and relative rarity, are the major factors in determining its value.
While physical condition can be assessed with a careful inspection, rarity and date of manufacture are not always easy to determine.
A new system was put in place in 1961 which was set up to include all the Gibson instrument lines.
This new system had the numbers pressed into the wood.
