I recently purchased a used Gibson Les Paul Classic from Guitar Center, and I was wondering if there was a way to figure out what year it was made in. Thanks in advance for the help.

the first and fifth number is the year
like 05678000 is an 08

TS, either your guitar is from the future, or was built decades before Gibson was founded.

Congratulations on your rare find .

this post reminded me of this rediculous ebay seller. he started the bid with 200,000 but on the bottom he showed firm proof it was worth $85,000, and every question was answered with a stupid yes.
