« on: August 17, 2013, 11:55:52 AM »
Hey All, Looking for some info on my Monterey Artist, from the mid 80's Two numbers on the inside first #93023 this is on the bottom next to the gw stamp. also on that same note, there is another mark in front of the 9, which I can't make out. The other number is on the center block almost under the neck joint. #21806.  Any info would be helpful. ie model # year, specs. Thank you for your time and consideration. I'l try to get some pics, once I figure out where to attach them.

Thanks for the infi, I'll try to posr some pics. This particular model has an ebony fretboard and bridge. Gold hardware,  under the saddle barcus berry pick-up w/ two knob control, bass/treble and volume. Tobacco Burst with a tiger striped arched back. Winged  MOP fret markers. There is not any model number anywhere to be found. I'm not sure when I bought this, but I think it was before '89
