Epiphone factory id


Recommended Posts

Your s/n is most likely IS (zero zero zero five) which would be May of 2000. The 0019 numbers are the production numbers.


I was searching on the old forum where someone was gracious enough to list the manufacturing plant that correlated

to the letters, but was unsuccesful.


I found another discussion at the old forum that did state another guitar w/IS was made in Korea.


Hope this helps.
