From 1902 to 1976, Gibson instruments have a serial number or a FON (Factory Order Number) or both.
However, in the beginning this was not done consistently, so that there are also be instruments without identification.
Note: Custom shop guitars are not supported The Gibson Serial Number Decoder currently supports 6 formats from 4 Factories.
Gibson has used various methods of numbering from 1900, so it is not simply based on the serial number to identify the year of manufacture..
Note that the series of between 19, may be an overlap from production in 19.
