Would anybody have any pics of the Gibson ledger for the first few weeks of 1961? I recently purchased a very early 1961 ES335 and would love to see the ledger page for my guitar. Serial number is A35731.

Thanks very much.

I have been looking for a few years, too. I own A35705- cherry red ES-335, never had a Bigsby, and
the FON is 'R'.

A35706 is also red, has a Bigsby. Here are pics posted on Tom's 335 site:

Also would like to see the '61 ledgers. Check Charlie Gelber's "The Gibson ES 335" site, under the specific list of 335s, for the red dot neck Custom Made/Bigsby where he is commenting about the change in the red dye used to a more fade resistant type than was previously used. Trying to verify the very first digit in the serial number ink stamped in the label , which has faded almost completely away. Thanks for any resource.
