Here"s whats on the wesite
J 40 spruce top black pickguard(large)bound body 3 strioe rosette, laminated mahogany back/sides, mahogany neck,14/20 fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay, rosewood(string through) bridge, screened peghead logo, 3 perside chrome tuners, available in natural. MFD 1971 to 1982
Serialization can bo found on Gibson website.
There was a change to this and for example my J40 serial number starts with a 600000's and was built in 71/72. This old guitar has a great sound had neck problems that were fixed before purchase required a little work bridge pins/nut/saddle(TUSQ)and installed a LR Bagg Ibeam and its magic my opinion anyhow.
Hope this helps haven"t seen one before

Nice guitar, I collect Gibsons,although this is not one of their best, as a collector I would be interested to hang with my J45 and j50.
I hope this has hekped you.
Let me know if you want to get rid of it for something better.
I hace a few nice guitars,Taylors ,Guild, Gibson and Tacoma.
I'm not a dealer but I do buy a few now and then, play it if I like it, and then pretty much sell it for whjat I paid plus the shipping.
It's weird but Ib really do this.
