The Epiphone serial number decoder currently supports 12 serial number formats
from 25 factories. Vintage numbers from 1932 to 1970 are supported. Serial numbers
from 70' and 80's era Epiphone guitars made in Japan are not supported. The reason
for this is that there is no reliable documentation from this time period.
This Module has been updated to work with the newer serial number formats.
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.
