    Hey Guitarexperts,

    I've got this supposed Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster at home, but I'm quite suspicious because of the serial number which I can't seem to find anywhere on the web. Could you please help me figure out whether this is an original Gibson or a Fake. Also would be interesing to find out something about the year.

    Thanks a lot! Best Regards

    Hi and welcome to this place.

    Best advice is to contact Gibson and ask them. They will need to see pics including the serial number.

    They have always answered my questions

    Gorgeous! Is is under armed guard? Really though, like John said, contact Gibson and they will confirm or deny the authenticity.
