Dating madeira guitar
I have a Madeira Guitar by Guild that I have had since about 1979. I, like others, have not had much luck finding anything on the internet about these guitars.
I cannot seem to find any information on this guitar. This one appears to be made in Japan based upon the oval decal inside.
Madeira A-32SB Dreadnought Sunburst I also have an A-32SB Madeira with the oval decal inside the sound hole.
I was happy to hear that someone else also has that same model since I have never seen or heard about another one until today.
Many guitar makers have brand-specific serial number information on their web pages, usually in the "Support," "FAQ," or "Info" sections.
Sometimes third-party websites also have solid information on guitar serial numbers.
Most guitar manufacturers put a serial number on each instrument they produce.
This number can be used to date a guitar and in some cases tell where it was made.
On some acoustic guitars, the serial number is on the inside of the sound hole.This can help when you are researching serial numbers.This information is often written on the headstock or truss rod cover.Each guitar brand uses a different set of serial numbers, so you need to identify your guitar before you attempt to use the serial number to learn when it was made.Determine the type of guitar (such as Gibson Les Paul or SG, Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster) if possible.
