What is The Guitar Dater Project?
The Guitar Dater Project aims to provide you with the information hidden in your Guitars' Serial number in plain English. It is a work in progress and is constantly evolving, much of which is due to user feedback.

5 Years worth of updates underway


Work has already started on the Epiphone page, will try to review each brand over the next few days. The email and comment system has not worked properly since 2008 and I will be working on that also

Fresh look for 2008


Finally finished the major updates to the site, expect smaller tweaks and more brands in the near future. Also check out the new guitar profile and serial breakdown features.

The Guitardater Project cannot verify the authenticity of ANY Guitar, this site is simply meant as a tool to satisfy the curiosity of guitar enthusiasts. This website possesses NO DATABASE of guitars made by manufactures, instead simple serial code patterns that are available on this site and in the wider guitar community are used. It follows that potential scammers can use this knowledge to try to trick unsuspecting buyers. If you have any doubts as to a guitars’ authenticity please contact the guitar manufacturer before your purchase.
