Gibson serial numbers are unreliable in that time period, but that would be somewhere from 1970-1975. Best bet would be to call Gibson Customer Service to try to pin it down.

I am looking at a guitar that claims to be a gibson but the serial number is not right. 5 6437 is pressed into the back of the headstock. Any ideas?


The response is bound to be confusing because Gibson used the same serial number on different models in different years.

That number matches

- a guitar of unspecified model made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA in 1962

- a Les Paul Classic made at the Nashville Plant, TN, USA
in 1995 or 2005

- a solidbody model made at the Nashville Plant, TN, USA
in 1955

I can't get closer than that. If very important you could get a professional appraisal from

Gibson LG-O serial # 48423 stamped on back of head stock...wondering what year it is?


That serial number is listed for a guitar made at the Gibson Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA in 1962

Reverb.com estimates value (depending on finish and condition) at US$1000 - 1600.

I have a kalmazoo bass guitar with the numbers 000011 on it. Can you tell me anything about it?


Gibson reused serial numbers in different decades on different models, which makes this tricky sometimes. However the Kalamazoo is recorded as being made from 1966 till 1969, so we can say your bass was made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA in 1967.

Depending on condition and originality, it would be worth about US$700-800 I think.

Gibson serial #122506 what year was it made?


This is tricky because Gibson duplicated serial numbers in different years on different models, and the serial number by itself does not give the model.

If the serial number is on the headstock, but not the place of manufacture, your guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA in 1963.

If definitely a Les Paul Classic the guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA in 1991 or in 2001 (see what I mean?)

If the serial number is on the headstock, along with "Made in USA", the guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Or Nashville Plant, USA in 1970, 1971 Or 1972.

Frustrating eh?

If you need to get closer than this with a professional appraisal you could try sending photos and details (plus a fee) to

Gibson ES 150D serial number 112106 - what year was this made?


The "F a t s o" model.

If it has "Made in the USA" on the headstock, then your guitar was made at the Kalamazoo or Nashville Plant, USA in 1970, 1971 Or 1972. If it does not, your guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Plant, in 1963 or 1967

The confusion arises because Gibson duplicated its serial numbers at different times, on different models, and the number by itself does not distinguish this.
