Gibson J-45 second

I have my grandfatherís J-45 and have found no way of dating it, as of yet. I would say itís a 60ís from the block logo. There is a metal plate embossed with GIBSON on the back of the headstock where the SN would normally be, and a 2 stamped just above, indicating itís a second.

No SN on neck block.
No sticker inside, just J-45 ADJ BRIDGE stamped on back inside wall

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to this place.

First thing I would do is email Gibson Support and ask them. They will need to see pics.

They have always answered my emails even if the answer is 'Sorry, we have no records'

Good luck
