Thanks for the info, Robert!

I see that site also works for other brands as well, which is very useful.

Should I be concerned it didn't recognize my serial? Mine is an 0904 number. It's a DOT Limited Edition Custom Shop.

figured it out.

GuitarDater seems to be pretty darn good for newer Gibsons & Epiphones, but I have found the data on vintage guitars too be off sometimes.

Hi folks, I just bought an Epiphone Del Rey. I cannot locate a serial number anywhere on the headstock. Is there any other place the manufacturer may stamp the number?

Well, without you providing any info at all, that is impossible. What, are we mind readers?

What is the serial number. What is the model?
And it sure would help to post some pics of it (headstock shot include).

Otherwise, nobody can help you. [biggrin]

Guitardater would be great if they would update the serials that it recognizes. It seems that they have lost interest in the project. I mean, they havent really updated in almost four years, but now you are innudated with a massive ad when you go there. Guitardater is crap becuase the owners let it slide in to irrelevance and are apparently resting on their laurels.

Anyway, who needs Guitardater to date an Epiphone when we have this thread? I havent even really used Guitardater since this thread went up.

Bye bye Guitar Dater Project. You used to be cool. It was nice knowing you.

Hey guys

I'm very new to the Epiphone LP world and I'm looking into purchasing my first.

Up until now I have my eye on two guitars and I would like to know if they are legit since the Guitar Dater can't recognize either.

S#1: 311552845
S#2: 311560242

Also, if you can, give me a brief explanation on how to differentiate a legit epiphone standard from counterfeits. I'd hate to get scammed :(

Hello there guys. I recently purchased an Epi (I just like the axes for the price and quality), but guitar dater didn´t find anything on the serial.
Any help? There you go:

Serial# 1104210476

From experience, I suppose it was manufactured in April 2011 (1104), am I correct? And what abaout "where"?

Thank you.

My Epi doesn't have a prefix letter so other than Korea, it's unclear where it may have been built.
