Washburn D27SC Serial Number Confirmation!!!
« on: February 22, 2019, 10:46:30 PM »
Hi...I just bought a D27SC with the serial number SI41105912

If I have understood the dating properly, I am thinking this was Made in Indonesia in 2004, and produced on November the 5th...the 912th off the line...is this correct?
thank youCCleaner Happy Wheels VLC

You may be correct. The prefix means Samick (Indonesia). Modern numbers are much easier to interpret than those from before the 1980s or 1990s.

Interestingly, there are people around who'll happily tell you that your guitar was built either in 1941 or 2041. ??? To be fair, Samick is usually meticulous about this... but I have seen two or three long (6 or 8 numerics) serial numbers that can't possibly indicate a year, much less any further data.
