    Gibson’s website has some info. Or google ‘Gibson serial numbers’.

    1962 is consistent with:

    Gibson Serial Numbers, Feb 1961 to 1970.

    All models, stamped in back top of peghead. No "MADE IN USA" stamp below serial number! Note many serial numbers are duplicated from 1963-1969. In these cases, to figure out which is the exact year for a guitar, see the General Specs section for more details. ALSO note: It is easy to confuse 5 digit and 6 digit serial numbers from this era, and hence get the wrong year for a guitar. That is, 55555 is not the same number as 555555 (but when reading the number off the back of a Gibson peghead, these two numbers do look very similar!)

    Range Year
    ----- ----
    0100 to 42440 1961
    42441 to 61180 1962
    61450 to 64222 1963
    64240 to 71040 1964
    71041 to 96600 1962, a few from 1963/1964
    96601 to 99999 1963
