Question: How do you find the date on a Gibson guitar?

Enter your Gibson guitars 8 or 9 digit serial number in the box below to find the date of manufacture. This decoder currently supports Gibson guitars from 1977 to date (older guitars coming soon). The serial number can be found on the back of the guitars headstock.

How do you find out when your guitar was made?

Look for a date marker on the neck. If those two dates match up, thats probably the exact date your guitar was built. If they dont, it could indicate that the guitars neck was replaced at some point, or that the guitar was built from spare parts and is not an original build.
