GUILD CUSTOM SHOP GUITARS

The Guild Custom Shop 45th Anniversary, Deco and Finesse models use a completely different serial numbering scheme. Each are numbered on the back of the headstock with the number in the given series, i.e. 1 of 45. Each also has a seven digit serial number inside the guitar. The first three numbers (beginning with 500), refer to the sequence of units made, i.e. 501, 502, 503 etc. . The last four digits refer to the date of production. The first and fourth of these numbers in reverse refer to the year of production. The middle two digits refer to the month. For example: #5077019 would mean the seventh guitar made that year, and would date to January 1997.
