Epiphone serial-number-information - identification Discussion in ' Epiphone Guitars ' started by Paruwi , Aug 11, Paruwi , Aug 11, Morscherszenasi , vomer , SGResu and 1 other person like this. This serial number system doesn't exactly tell the year - and doesn't tell the month at all. They were made by Terada and usually have an Orange Epiphone label. The early Japanese blue labels were left over from production at the Kalamazoo factory and were used on Japanese-made instruments until supplies ran out approximately These labels say "Union Made" in the lower left corner and are sometimes hand-stamped with "Made in Japan" at the bottom.

Some of the interim blue lables had neither the "Union Made" nor "Made in Japan" markings on them. When supplies ran out, these labels were replaced with a new batch that were printed "Made in Japan" in the lower right corner. Pre "Union Made" labels are distinguishable from labels used on Japanese intruments by the printed model name of the intrument only. So pretty, I'm afraid to play it. I'm getting over that though. And I know where my old Epi Regent bass is that I paid 35 dollars for back in I WILL get it back!

What made you say "Chinese"? Were there stickers on it indicating made in China? What serial code points to Korea? If there is an error in the data sheet, then I want to see it corrected. But I'm a musician not a bookkeeper nor a scoundrel so if Ricochet or anyone else wants to take over I'll happily exit the scene. I go on the road for a few weeks , take a quick check in from a remote computer, and find the place a wreck!!! Since we keep losing valuable info every couple of months anyway then the argument that we would lose too much info in the switch is really a moot one, right?
Anyway paruwi, I do have a backup copy of the factory codes thread but it is on disc back home so is out of my reach for awhile. It seems the most relevent update was your input on the four number codes, so if you PM me those I will update on-the-fly. Cheers to everyone from the road. I really want a Korean made Sheraton ii. I hope that helps! I've been seeing many Epiphone LPs with serial numbers begining with F. I have here a few: F, F which i found on the ebay.
According to Guitardateproject they are made in Korea Fine plant.
Have you met any of those and what you think about it? Appreciate any answers, thanks. Mine was built in December of 96 as opposed to August of 96 , and I can tell you it is a great guitar. Plays, feels, and sounds great. I won the auction yesterday at ebay on one of these. The serial number begins with F I hope it is a great guitar as you said: I've been considering another one made in Czech R.
I don't think there is much diference between these two though there is opinion that the Czech ones are of a bit better quality I just received a beauty of an SG in trade for a Vintage Yamaha. I went to check the serial number and was dismayed to find it did not register nor was mine like any other SG I was seeing. The serial number is and there was a "Inspection by QC" sticker and a "Made in China" sticker on the back of the headstock as well. When I got it all the plastic was still on the pickguard, backplate and even the pickup covers.
It literally is in "New" condition. From the serial number explanation above I can figure out it was built in at the Quingdau facility in China? The serial number is or without a letter. The owner says its the older model from '91 or ' Here are some pics: I'm in the process of getting my Casino. Here's where y'all com in.uninfoge.ml

The serial is GG Now, we look at the serial and we can see that GG isn't an Epiphone serial. Now I need to hear from the others that have one of these GG's. Because mine is a lefty with a Bigsby. The GG may be the lefty serial? Better than the model that got me hooked on these beauties in the first place. And that one plays like a dream compared to my Ibanez's. Where the hell was my new 59 LP reissue made?
It has a stamped serial number that starts F Is it the amount of units produced that month, or the order in which your guitar came off the line? T his is what it says tho on my Epiphone Tag: So thats the main thing [biggrin]. Guess they are not stocking them locally anymore hence the insane price. I'm in dispute with someone I bought an Epiphone Dot from and they refuse to take your post as a reliable source. I feel that they say this as your post suggests that what they sold me as a Korean model is in in fact a Chinese one, as denoted by the 5th and 6th digits of the serial number being 15 full serial number is Thanks.
Anyway, the guitar you bought should have a sticker that says either "Crafted in China" or "Made in Korea". What's up with my deleted messages? I do not recall deleting them. From what jerrymac and RobinTheHood have been able to tell me it appears to be an S series possibly a special order S with a Kayler Flyer bridge from somewhere between - As noted the serial number may not conform to the current data as it would have it as a but it appears the S series did not start production until and it appears not to follow the Samick 8 digit serial number as noted in the Premier guitar article about an S series.
For anyone interested the serial number is: My name is Stefano, from Italy, i found precious information in this topic. According to you, which is the right value for the guitar the hardshell is included? Thanks for all the answer and sorry for my bad english Stefano. Thanks in advance, Jay. I'm from italy, and this is my first post here.
I've find an EPI es , but i need some help with the serial number.
The sticker in said Nashville Tennessee, the serial is Antone can help me? Tnx to all, and excuse for bad english.
Don't care where it's made, it's freakin nice!! To me it looks more like a Gibson fake but i am not an expert, cheers! Having read this thread I have discovered there is a grey cloud above serial numbers that prefix with "GG". Is it safe to assume it's a genuine Epiphone?? The factory as of yet is unknown. The only way to assure you're getting a genuine Epiphone, is to buy it at a genuine Epiphone dealer. I won this auction on my iphone so it was hard to see the details properly.
It was all a bit last minute so i have decided to do a bit of research after the win not ideal i know! All the one's i've seen from this date period have a very different coloured plate and the yellow branches aren't quite so prominent.

Perhaps it's just the photo or the flash that makes it look different, but thought i'd better get your advice before i actually pay for the thing! Maybe another member can chime in here. It is a Peerless Korea made guitar with an original factory installed Epiphone Bigsby.
