In 1970, Gibson started stamping "Made In U.S.A" on the back of headstock, below the six digit serial number. This is a quick way to tell if you have a post 69 Gibson. If so, the above dating chart does not apply. For Gibson's made after 1977, the first and fifth digit is the year made. For example, 80920334 would be made in 1980.
