Guild starfire dating


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. I recently acquired this Guild Starfire III with Hoboken label and serial number EK 3121 (on label and back of headstock). Your guitar was constructed during a transition period when Guild was moving from Hoboken, NJ to Westerly, RI, and there seem to be some inconsistencies in record-keeping.D300719 D300921 D35 DB104288 DB104477 DB104697 DB104754 DB104754 N/A D40 DC101972 DC102066 DC102190 D0400233 DC400482 D400640 D40C DG101032 DG101068 DC102190 D0400233 DC400482 D400640 D46 DL100839 DL100870 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A GE100047 GE100049 N/A N/A N/A N/A DS48CE GF100026 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A D50 DD101789 DD101878 DD101928 DD101210 D500447 D500478 D50/12 D5012014 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A D52 EK100054 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A D55 DE101298 DE101374 DE101406 DE101407 N/A DE101376 D60 N/A N/A N/A D0600113 D600234 D600306 D62 KB100046 KB100060 N/A N/A N/A N/A D64 KC100031 KC100051 KC100193 N/A N/A N/A D65 N/A N/A N/A D0650012 N/A N/A D66 KD100110 KD100162 KD100208 N/A N/A N/A D70 EF100263 EF100280 N/A N/A N/A N/A D80 EG100017 EG100019 N/A EG100024 N/A N/A D100 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A D212 AA102114 AA102395 AA102792 N/A N/A N/A D225 N/A N/A N/A N/A D225768 N/A D312 N/A N/A DJ100299 DJ100300 N/A N/A DE500 AG100148 AG100153 AG100169 N/A N/A N/A DETONATOR JH000341 JH100580 N/A N/A N/A N/A F20 FA100545 FA100595 FA100663 N/A N/A N/A F30 FB100509 FB100527 N/A N/A N/A N/A F30R N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A F40 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A F42 KG100036 KG100065 N/A N/A N/A N/A F44 KH100078 KH100186 KH100249 F0440017 N/A N/A F45 N/A N/A N/A F0450311 F450535 F450664 F45CE GB100533 GB100683 GB100839 N/A N/A N/A F45/12 GJ100030 N/A GJ100157 N/A N/A N/A F46 KJ100029 KJ100089 KJ100121 N/A N/A N/A FS46BASS N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A FS46CE EJ100306 EJ100370 EJ100401 N/A N/A N/A FS46CE/12 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A F50 FD100600 FD100650 FD100693 N/A N/A N/A F50R FE100462 FE100479 FE100505 FE100515 N/A N/A F112 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A F212 FG100358 FG100382 N/A N/A N/A N/A F212C N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A F212XL FJ100545 FJ100567 N/A N/A N/A N/A F412 FK100445 FK100476 FK100506 FK100578 N/A N/A F512 FL100519 FL100543 FL100569 N/A N/A N/A G37 DF101890 DF101990 DF102135 N/A N/A N/A G45 GD100053 GD100080 N/A GD100089 N/A N/A G212 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A G312 DJ100287 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A GF25 N/A N/A N/A GF250409 GF250715 GF250845 GF30 N/A N/A N/A GF300269 GF300498 GF300604 GF40 N/A N/A N/A GF400082 GF400086 N/A GF50 N/A N/A N/A GF500212 GF500290 GF500322 GF50R N/A N/A N/A FE100512 N/A N/A GF50/12 N/A N/A N/A GF50120043 N/A N/A GF55 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A GF100002 GF60M N/A N/A N/A GF600048 GF600082 N/A GF60R N/A N/A N/A GF60R0087 GF600206 GF600275 GX SERIES N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A JF30 N/A N/A N/A JF300234 JF300618 JF300663 JF30/12 N/A N/A N/A JF30120198 J230398 J230561 JF50 N/A N/A N/A JF500050 JF500112 N/A JF50/12 N/A N/A N/A JF501250007 N/A N/A JF55 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A FE100562 JF65M N/A N/A N/A JF650031 N/A N/A JF65R N/A N/A N/A JF65R0019 N/A FE100516 JF65/12 N/A N/A N/A JF65120064 J265153 JF265227 JF65R/12 N/A N/A N/A JF65R0018 N/A N/A JF212XL N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A FJ100612 LIBERATOR JK000085 JK000206 N/A N/A N/A N/A M80 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A MARK II CA100657 CA100689 CA100733 CA100743 N/A N/A MARK III CB100406 CB100425 CB100461 CB100463 N/A N/A MARK IV CC100253 CC100270 N/A N/A N/A N/A MARK V CD100156 CD100176 CD100184 CD100185 N/A N/A MKS10CE CE100046 CE100056 N/A N/A N/A N/A NIGHT BIRD N/A BL100104 BL100324 N/A N/A N/A NIGHT BIRD I N/A N/A N/A BE100083 BC100103 N/A NIGHT BIRD II N/A N/A N/A BL100426 BL100489 BL100530 NIGHTINGALE JL000040 JL000082 N/A N/A N/A N/A PRESTIGE ST N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A PRESTIGE CL N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A PRESTIGE EX N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A PROTOTYPES LL100228 LL100234 LL100237 LL100238 N/A FF000006 S25 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A S60 -
