Is my Hound Dog Dobro USA made?


Recommended Posts

It's a square neck, high nut Dobro with the round screen covered holes (not F holes). The serial number stamped on the top of the head stock is:

 

6 151 S 93 H

 

I believe it is a 1993 model. It has a hand written date inside of 2/28/93 but I cannot find the Country it was manufactured in anywhere.

 

Thanks!

Should be 1993 indeed, made in Huntington Beach, California:

 

Regular Dobro production began in 1929 in LA. In 1932, production split to LA and Chicago. 1965 -Production moved to Gardena California. Shortly after (C. 1967), Dobro moved to Huntington Beach, CA. Gibson purchased OMI in 1993. In 1997, Gibson moved production to Nashville.
