dual serial numbers?
« on: October 18, 2008, 03:05:05 AM »
my washburn MG104 has dual serial numbers. Etched in the back of the headstock and on the neck plate.  Is this common? What one do I go by?  Thanks

well either the neck was replaced or the neck plate was replaced...
which one is newer? (you can see by the serial number)

well like you said before, if 92 matched the model's year, i'm guessing it is a 92
I'm not sure, but I think the neck plate's serial also means 92

I believe we already discussed this in another thread. Its a 92, the early US made guitars were made before their neckplates were ready so they just used import plates until the real ones were available.........
