  1. The 'link' seems to be broken. I've even tried "epiphonewiki.com" (even with the http://), it "times-out". Or is this just a problem I'm having? Thanks, Conrad
  2. Paul, The //epiphonewiki 'link' appears to be broken. I've even tried "epiphonewiki.com", but this 'times-out' also. Is website/page "gone"? Thanks, Conrad
  3. Thanks, Jim. They definitely created confusion by simultaneously using FON's and then "lettered" Serial #'s (in 1947.) It requires a some mental gymnastics (and getting used to the "system.") - Am I understanding this correctly ? "Quick Overview: Serial Number/FON Identification by Era." ...and the statement: "1947-1952: Factory Order Numbers of 3 or 4 digits, followed by a hyphen, followed by by 1 or 2 more digits, ink stamped on the inside back." -- (it would help to indicate that the "hypen" sometimes doesn't show up (or faded-out)... and looks like a "space.") And, then further down the webpage... "Gibson Factory Order Numbers, 1942 to 1951. < text deleted for brevity > Year Factory Order Number ---- -------------------- < 1941 - 1946 data deleted > 1947 700s to 1000s 1948 1100s to 3700s ('Script' logo no longer used, block logo used.) 1949 2000s 1950 3000s to 5000s 1951 6000s to 9000s <correlating my "9129" portion in this range ? >
  4. Hello. I am 99% certain that I have an ES-125 (not a 125T, or other variant.) The serial # is 9129 14. Can anyone tell me what year it was made? Thanks, Conrad
