This Classic was made in 1998?
« on: April 23, 2017, 06:05:42 PM »
It looks like I have a 1998 Classic with a basswood neck and a mahogany body. Here's the serial number.
222018BMH.
Am I right?
Thanks, Paul

Serial # 222018BMH - I thought the first three numbers meant the guitar was made on Feb.22nd?

As I understand it the first 3 numbers are day of year it was made on, next set are production numbers for that day, last digit is year number, then neck and body woods.

I used this for the day of year
