Help to date an EB0

I have an EB0 that I am researching - based on findings to date place manufacture mid 60's. Any expert observations or opinions on when it was made? What it might be worth on today's market?
Additional info on request
Serial number 13934X - 20 frets

cheers

Hi and welcome to this place.

Why not contact those who made the guitar? The manufacturers are always the best place to contact about info on guitars. They will help if they can

They will need to see pics, including the serial number.

Reached out to Gibson but no response. No surprise as the company is on verge of chapter 11

They've been on the verge of chapter 11 for years....they've always responded in the past. Give them a few days. John told you what to do 2 days ago (Friday). Like most of us, they probably have the weekends off so they may not have even read your email yet.

Whereabouts in Toronto are you located?

Agree with Rob. Give them chance. I have asked numerous questions over the years and they have ALWAYS responded, even if the response was to say sorry our records do not cover your question.
