1) We verify the authenticity of all of our Gibson Les Paul guitars, and we only sell authentic made in USA Gibson guitars. We provide a link to how you can authenticate your Gibson guitar from the serial number, and how you can tell the year your guitar was manufactured and all its specs.
To determine whether your guitar is an authentic Gibson or not, please call Gibson directly at 18004442766 then select 1. Make sure you don't leave a voicemail--if they are too busy because Gibson customer support doesn’t usually respond and if they do, they don't respond fast enough. However, if you don't get transferred to a voicemail, that's a good sign. You will usually speak with either Bob, Benton, Roger, Vincent, Darryl or John. Make sure you have the serial number of the guitar handy, as you can ask for the authenticity, the year the guitar was manufactured, and specs.
Here is a quick method to determine the year your guitar was manufactured (this applies to all guitars from 1977 to today):
- For Gibson Les Paul classic, Les Paul traditional, Les Paul supreme, Les Paul custom (non custom shop), Les Paul studio, Les Paul special, Les Paul BFG, Les Paul axcess, Les Paul ultima, SG standard, SG special, Gibson ES 335, ES 137, ES 333, this applies to almost all non reissue the method is: the first and the fifth, so if the first digit is 0 and the fifth is 7 that means your guitar is a 2007.
- For Gibson Les Paul classic: the method is the first and second
- For Gibson Les Paul custom historic reissue: the method is the second, because the first is the reissue year. For example, if the serial number starts with 7 3, that means the guitar is a custom 57 reissue manufactured in the year 2003. If the first digit is an 8, and the second is a 9 that means your guitar is a Gibson Les Paul custom historic 1958 reissue.
