My parents discovered this guitar missing from their home a few weeks back.

My parents discovered their ’59 Gibson guitar missing from their home a few weeks back. My grandfather bought it new, and it’s been a family heirloom and point of pride ever since I remember. My dad discovered that the case he keeps it in was empty, and suspects a shady “family friend” who has been known to have a past record of stealing things.

He already filed a police report but asked it I could help by identifying the serial number in the poor quality photos that he has.

Any help is most appreciated!

See the serial numbers on the headstock. Due to the poor image quality, we can’t make them out. We’re hoping that providing this will at least help identify the guitar should it show up in any local pawn shops. Is anyone here skilled enough to make out those numbers?
