Year made and where made

Recommended Posts

Hi Ed,

It looks like your serial # begins with two letters (GO), followed by 1070642.  This would date differently from a number read as a G followed by the number 01070642.  In other words, if that second digit was a zero rather than a letter O.

If the number is correctly read as beginning with the letters 'GO', followed by 1070642, then I would read that as a guitar made in July, 2010 (using the code YYMRRRR).

If the number is actually G followed by the number 01070642, this would suggest a manufacturing date of July 2001 (using the code YYMMRRRR).

An explanation of the above codes, and more details can be found under "Epiphone", here:  https://www.themusiczoo.com/blogs/news/gibson-and-epiphone-guitars-serial-number-guide

Hope this is helpful.

These were made in the early 2000s, so yours would be a 2001. Not sure what the G stands for. The only G serials we are aware of are from early Qingdao Masterbilts, which is for some reason unrecognized by Epiphone as a factory code.  A pic may help, but maybe not.
