So I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me the year of my guitar, or knew of a link to one of those serial number search sites... I believe it to be from the '50's, because it has both the Gibson and Epiphone names imprinted on the headstock. So, please, if anyone knows anything about it.

Isn't there a search-engine kind of thing that will look up the year and everything when you punch in the serial?

It can't be from the fiftys because Gibson didn't own epiphone yet. You can e-mail gibson the serial # and they should be able to tell you the year.

Gibson bought Epiphone in 1957.

Exactly, and that's why I believe BOTH names are on the headstock, and that's why I would like to find the exact year. Probably '57-'58

any chance Ibanez does that for my '75 SG double neck???? 'cuz it's a pre-lawsuit... they're not allowed to make those anymore. (because the headstock looks exactly the same as the gibson... after '79 they started using other headstocks...)

- Fender Strat (1988, Japan)
- Epiphone Les Paul (2008, Korea,)

and some stuff non-used stuff for sale/trade in the Netherlands
