I'm trying to date one of my Gibson SJ guitars - It's the typical slope shoulder design. It has no serial number but does have a factory number inside ending with a Y. The peghead does NOT have a pearl crown. My guess is that is is a 1953 HOWEVER, it does not have a pick guard like my 1943 SJ (which it should) but has the longer pickguard with point at lower bout. Anybody have a guess what this is all about? (It has not been refinished and that IS the original factory pick guard) Am I safe to call this a '53? Any input would be appreciated….

Aye, I dated a Gibson girl.

She was beautiful....slope shouldered (the shawl drooped and carasseed her arms)

I thought her older than 47 at least 50.... anything else would have been statutory

Ah! Guest thank you. This is what I like about Mudcat. Brings me to add that my True-love dates a 56-year-old Gibson girl. Don't mind. He lets me sing with her.
