SS40/B serial number help
« on: May 18, 2017, 11:49:53 AM »
I just picked up a nice SS40/B with serial number 3030007.  Could someone help me interpret this number.  Does the first 3 mean it was manufactured in '93.  What does the second 3 represent?

Was Korea the country of manufacture?

Its in good shape with an unfinished headstock and normal Washburn logo.
Thanks
Mark

Yep, available 1993-1994, & probably before the move MII/MIC so probably Korea.

Some say that would be "month of year," & that's more likely to be correct with longer serial numbers, but I've yet to see this confirmed by the company. In any case, its likely that your guitar was #7 of that run, & (considering the brevity of the line) maybe #7, period.
