I wonder wich year my Gibson melody maker was made. The serie number is: C924599


From what I can find at the site, your Melody Maker could be a 1974 or 1975, made in Kalamazoo.

Hi..just wondering what year my hagstrom electric guitar is.. 6 string-serial #872108 thanks


Ooo tougher. Hagstrom wants you to buy their book in order to figure that one out. Your guitar is batch 872 and the 108th guitar in that batch. Since there's no 53 proceeding the 872, you may be looking at an early 70's. When they reached batch 888 they added a 53, i.e. 53888 for bookkeeping reasons.
