    1952 Gibson Les Paul model

    I have been told that I have a 1952 Gibson Les Paul model. It all looks original except I am concerned about the headstock. It does not have a serial number but has AMS 6262 steel stamped on the backside. Is it possible that a previous owner could have replaced the headstock if it was damaged or is this even physically possible? Comments will be appreciated.

    I'm not sure I can be of much help, but 1952 was the first year Gibson sold the Les Paul model. According to this Wikipedia article, "Early 1952 Les Pauls were not issued serial numbers, did not have bound fingerboards, and are considered by some as "LP Model prototypes". However, later 1952 Les Pauls were issued serial numbers and also came with bound fingerboards."

    It may be helpful if you could post some photos. There are some very knowledgeable people on this forum. Welcome!
