Hi out there, I am trying find the correct age of my Classic Gibson Les Paul and am struggling. it's serial number is 064336. Any help would be great fully appreciated. Thank you

This is actually not an easy question to answer a Gibson (as you may already know) has used multiple numbering schemes..Your guitar may be a 2000... This is from Gibson's site: "Les Paul Classic: This model features an ink stamped serial number with no "MADE IN USA" (just as we used on the original 1952-1960 Les Pauls). Most will be 5 to 6 digits in length, but the earliest examples feature 4 digit serial numbers. There should be a space after the 1st digit with the 4 and 5 digit serial numbers, and no space with the 6 digit numbers. The 1st digit indicates the year of manufacture for the 4 & 5 digit serial numbers, these were used from 1989-1999. The 1st and 2nd indicate the year of manufacture for the 6 digit serial numbers which we've been using since 2000. Examples - 9 xyx = 1989 (4 digit number beginning with "9" used only in 1989) 0 xxyx = 1990 9 xyxx = 1999 00xyxx = 2000 05xyxx = 2005" Alternatively many people have gotten the best answer by calling Gibson directly: USA: 1-800-4GIBSON HTH!

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.

Can you date gibson acoustic with serial number L-67913 should be LG-2

No, but you can try:

"Serial numbers can be extremely tricky," says Gibson Customer Service Manager Jason Davidson, whose team fields calls and emails regarding every Gibson division. "Some can tell you a lot about a guitar, and some don't really tell you anything. Gibson has had so many different schemes over the years, and now we're using reissue serial numbers that look like the old serial numbers."
