Production Date from serial # ?
« on: August 24, 2009, 12:15:07 PM »
Is it possible to identify the production date from the serial # printed on the headstock of an N4?

Thanks.

Yes it is. What's your serial number? Got any pics of your N? [;)]

Well...so far I've figured the first two may be production year '07...?

Pics are around from when I joined the forum somewhere under my username...forgive me but this is only 3rd time on the forum in over a yr. :D

If the serial starts with an 07, thin yes, it was made in 2007... If it starts with just a 7, it was made in 1997...
