My 335


Recommended Posts

There is nothing that can be told from this serial number alone. The 9XX,XXX numbers were used in multiple years (68, 70, 71, 72 and possibly others). Photos and a more detailed description would help, but the six-digit serial number system is a complete mess. Things like the presence (or not) of a "Made In USA" stamp and/or a volute on the back of the headstock will narrow it down a little.


Your best bet is probably going to be the potentiometer codes, and getting the numbers off them in a 335 is not an easy task, and many times the numbers are covered by ground wire solder. By using a small mirror and a flashlight you should be able to see the bottom of the pots through the f-hole. You're looking for what is generally a seven-digit number, most likely starting with "137"


Post this additional information and I'm sure we can tell you what you want to know.
