I have owned a few Gibson with Second stamped on the back of the headstock, both were made in the early 70s. I have heard from dealers and collectors that most of the time the guitars had nothing wrong with them and that Gibson stamped 2nd on alot of overstock guitars to get rid of them later in the year. Of course originially it was suppose to have 2nd on them since they had minor finish flaws? Any body own a 2nd Gibson? anybody ever find the flaw? Both of mine were actually custom ordered, so for the life of me, can't figure out how a custom ordered guitar got second stamped on the headstock Oh and please no I hate gibson posts, I've heard and read them all on here.
