It should be a 1968 .......or ...... if it has "Made in USA" on the headstock (back) it would be 1974

Your instrument appears to be a Gibson TG-25N built in 1968.

Many thanks john and bob!So this little guitar has one year more than me... I’m born in 1969! :-)

Well, since Gibson serial numbers from that period can only be narrowed down to +/- 2 years [at best] anyway, it could have been made in 1969 . . . That's nice chord solo work in your video.
