Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Re: D-30S dating help

For anyone interested, here is the answer to this puzzle graciously provided by Jim Smith:

   "This is a D-36 S that has the wrong model number stamped on the sticker. (This happens once in a while) In an earlier post, on the Washburn forum, I explained that sound hole stickers are applied to Washburn acoustics when the instrument is sold to a dealer for retail sale.  The serial number stamped on the sound hole sticker does not necessarily indicate the year of manufacture.  If the guitar is built in 2004....but is not sold to a retailer until will have a serial number starting with 5 (the year it shipped to the retailer).
So your D-36-S was mismarked as a D-30 and was likely built in 2004 but not sold to a retailer until 2005...thus a serial number that starts with SI5xxxxx.
Your model was built by Samick...Indonesia and was manufactured from 2002 to 2004."

Thanks ya'll.  This one has had me stumped.   I tried to email Washburn about it, but it just bounced back and I've had no luck with their contact form.

Tony-  It does look like a D-36s based on this picture I found of a 2002 model.,c_limit,e_unsharp_mask:80,f_auto,fl_progressive,g_south,h_620,q_90,w_620/v1484594803/diengwmjyjhdheqqd1u2.jpg

Just don't know why the serial number tag says differently lol

I have a D-30S I have been unable to date.  My understanding is the first number or two denotes year.  I believe the D-30s was produced from 1991-1994.  However, my serial number is SI 50102220. It's a great guitar, and I'd like to know more about it.

I put up some images at
