I’ll start with trying to date the instrument, but keep in mind that dating and identifying Gibson guitars typically go hand in hand.I get several questions about Gibson serial numbers every day, and my initial answer is always to not expect or rely on the serial number alone to determine the year of manufacture.On the inside of your vintage Fender amplifier there is a paper chart with the tube locations for that particular model. On the tube chart there will be a rubber ink stamp with two letters.In the chart below you will see the letters that coincide with the year and month of the amps manufacture.The first letter is the year and the second letter is the month. If the tube chart is not in the amp or has been torn or damaged and you cannot read the ink stamped letters you can date the amp by the codes on the potentiometers.Below is a chart of the manufacturing codes for potentiometers.

However, the Les Paul Standard model was not produced between 19 (it was officially reintroduced in 1976).

Based on the charts originally compiled from Gibson’s shipping ledgers by author A. Duchossoir, the serial number you provided could have been used on Gibson guitars produced in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, or 1975.

The most important dating feature on guitars with six-digit serial numbers is that, starting in 1970, Gibson began stamping “Made In USA” near the serial number on the back of the headstock.

Checking the date codes on pots is usually the second step (after approximating the date of the serial number) in determining the guitar’s year. And because many manufacturers purchased pots in large quantities, the pots could sit on the shelves for weeks—if not months—before they were installed.

Basically, dating the pots only confirms the time the guitar could have been produced.
