Where is a Dime with the serial S5089172 from and when was it made?

Summerdog posted a Blackjack with the serial S50681741.
nogins response: With the S beginning the serial, it should be Samick, Korea, 1995.

So I guess the same goes for the one i am looking at. Samick, Korea, 1995. Correct?

Regarding Washburn serial numbers - anybody have any evidence or theories that the two numbers following the production year number/s represents the month of production?  I know Epiphone has done that at times with their guitars produced in plants in China & ROK.   I only ask since I have a HB-35 with s/n SK0007XXXX.  Using what we know, the s/n indicates my HB-35 was produced in 2000 @ Samick, ROK which is OK.  Having some experience with production of high value items with serial numbers, manufactures use serial numbers to encode useful/needed information (usually related to quality assurance issues).  Taking the remaining numbers from my guitar, they could indicate 1)it was produced in July of 2000 and the remaining four digits represnt its actual production number for the month, or 2) the last six digits could indicate somebody though the Samick plant was capable of producing up to 999,999 guitars in a year (83,333/month or 3788/day in a 22 day work month).  Knowing it would be a lot easier & faster to located when a bath of defective guitars was made if the serial number clearly showed factory/yr/mo data (as oppposed to searching through factory production records) it just seems to make sense to me.  Only problem is I have no idea of the scale of production of some of these Asian manufacturing plants.  Anybody have any ideas or comments on any of this?

By the Way - if anybody cares I'm living in San Diego and have the day off today for a Snow Day - serious (I work up in the mountains east of San Diego - 3500')!

1)it was produced in July of 2000

This is what I was told by previous Washburn management(before Nick). This applies to guitars made in the 90's, and after, with the longer serials First 2 digits are year. Next 2 digits are month.
     Enjoy your day off(snow day).

As far as i know(but,sorry if i`m wrong!!!)the letters are the country of production,the first no`s are the year,second no`s are the month and last no`s for the amount made(i.e.455 would be the 455th guitar of that month.)
so a serial no,for example,of is02040567 would be made indonesia,in 2002,in april and it would have been the 567th of that month.Am i correct?

Hello,

I have a Washburn D-15M. I bought it 2nd hand 11 years ago. It still sounds really good. I looked inside while changing the snares and i saw the serial number, and that made me a bit curious. The serial number is: 8309016 Now what I would like to know, the first two numbers ( 83 ), could this be that the guitar is build in 1983? If so, it would be great, because that means the guitar is build in the year of my birth, what makes it a bit more exclusive for me ;)
thanks for answers!

Hello,   I am new to the forums. I just purchased a Wing Series Electric that has chrome Grover tuners. I believe this is an Eagle R. The serial # on the back of the headstock is 802324. It is printed  and lacquered over. Washburn has not done a very good job of archiving documentation and preserving their history. Puzzling why that is. Can anyone help with validating what I have, and when and where it was made. This guitar has the nicest intonation and action I have ever played.
