I don't know if this will work... but I gave it a shot..!!!
Here are a couple pics to ponder. If this works and anyone needs more... I'll certainly comply the best I can.
Thanks,
Bo

Added Note... My serial # is  P/E? (kinda smudged) 88486 and the stamped logo inside sound hole w/ Woodstock in ink to the right.
Sorry to all for making this more difficult... I should have added to my first one.... I'm new at forums...[:I]
Thanks for any help here... I'd just like to verify the year with someone.

Bo

I would think that the first two numbers make it a 1988.Tom.[:)]

I'm not sure what P/E stands for.  I know the EA guitars were made in Korea and Indonesia.  Not sure about China but I think so.  The festival series is numbered EA10, 16, 20 and goes up to 50. The EA20SDL has a solid spruce top and B-Band electronics a step up from the earlier lam tops and Equis electronics.  Nice thin body guitar if you can find one.  Most of the festival line are all laminate guitars.  The EA20 I used to own is a all lam but sounded pretty good straight acoustic and very good amped up.  If you come across one somethinng to look at is the bridge/saddle.  Mine had a seven piece saddle assembly.  Black plastic carrier with six individual chicklet style saddles.  I needed to replace them and wound up making six pieces from a bone blank.  I used a Dremel tool to do it.  Not hard to do but took a bit of time.  Sounded way better with the bone.

It looks more like brown to me. I had an EA40 Woodstock(had EA40 on back brace), about like the one pictured. Same controls, had a 1/4 wide saddle, with a Barcus Berry pickup under it, about as wide as the saddle.  On a side note, I bought a new EA10S last year that is made in China. It's overbuilt in some ways, but it has a solid spruce top, and rosewood back and sides. Has a Fishman preamp. It's only a couple of years old, '09 model, I think.

Thanks,looked at a DK20cet today. #BC6061714 , I'm guessing its all lam, real fancy binding all the way around it.I am going to research it, don't really want a lam top though. Tom. Not for me, still looking for a Festival.[:)]
