It is presumed the instrument is from the 1970's manufacturing of the Mastertone line. A person from Gibson dated the instrument as 1962-4 and as an RB-3. Others believe it to be in the 1970's (compare others on Ebay) and an RB-250. Markings on the back of the headpiece is stamped,''Made in the U.S.A. and 80066''.
There is a Gold Authenticity Tag inside the instrument that says Gibson Mastertone, Gibson Inc., Kalamazoo MI 49007.
