In 1964 the Gretsch serial numbers were 5 digits. You’ve logged yours in with a 6 digit number. Have you inadvertently added a number?

No, 638677 is the number on the plate!

Well that’s really interesting… and I’d assume it was a typo or a Gretsch employee losing focus, but for the fact that I have documented another like this at #638687. I have also documented the guitar with #63869, and it’s a normal 5-digit number. Who knows man… crazy stuff at the Brooklyn factory!!!
