This item is in the category “Consumer Electronics\Radio Communication\Ham, Amateur Radio\Ham Radio Transceivers”.As of 2017 The Hoshino Gakki company began in 1908 as the musical instrument sales division of the Hoshino Shoten, a bookstore chain.Hoshino Gakki decided in 1935 to make Spanish-style acoustic guitars, at first using the "Ibanez Salvador" brand name in honor of Spanish luthier Salvador Ibáñez, and later simply "Ibanez".Gibson introduced a new pattern when they began producing solid body guitars.An ink stamp on the back of the headstock which included either 5 or 6 digits.The first digit is the year and the other numbers are production numbers.
Since all the instruments using this serial number pattern were acoustic or semi-hollow the labels were located inside the instrument body.
The system was used from 1961 to 1969 and had many problems that resulted in duplicated batch numbers so the numbers from those years are approximate and exact dates are hard to come by.
If the instrument has original electronics some dating can be verified by pot numbers.
In the early years Gibson also used Factory Order Numbers (F O N) to track batches of instruments being produced at the time.
For information on FON numbers a copy of The Blue Book of Electric Guitars by Zachary R. For the most accurate identification contact Gibson.
