My mother had purchased this guitar used in 1973. The seller had said that the guitar was around 10 years old at that point, but I'm only seeing 1975 models on Google. If any body has any info on this guitar, please share it

Inside the sound hole, heres all the info:
Model no.: 5038
Ano.: 19219
Made in Japan
Hand made

Epiphone Les Paul Custom
Digitech RP100
Kustom RC30
Jazz III picks

goodness, rocktolive! that's the most intelligent thing i've heard in the pit since Jackal58 came up with sliced e-cookie!
I'd probably contact Alvarez about this one. I don't know of any way to date Alvazrez guitars other than the Yairai models.
