serial number for each model in each given year.The first three numbers (beginning with 500), refer to the sequence of units made, i.e. The first and fourth of these numbers in reverse refer to the year of production. For example: #5077019 would mean the seventh guitar made that year, and would date to January 1997.There are other resources for dating Guild guitars which you may also want to consult, such as: “The Guild Guitar Book” by Hans Moust, and “Gruhn’s Guide To Vintage Guitars” by George Gruhn.
