Question: What do the numbers mean on a Gibson Guitar?

What does the serial number on a Gibson guitar mean?

Gibson did not use serial numbers at that time but started in 1953. The first digit of the series number is the last digit of the year. If the stamped number consists of 5 digits, there is a space between the first and second digit (a separation between the last digit of the year and the actual serial number).
