Springy Sound Serial Num Dates?

Post by ned » Tue Oct 05, 2004 3:17 pm

I've been searching through the Registry - needs more tweaking - and have discovered a pattern which I have yet to disprove.

3rd digit = year of manufacture. Can't prove 100% but haven't found anything to disprove yet.

So the next step is to disprove this theory. Start poking holes ...

Not enough Silver Star examples in the Registry to get a good sample.

Hmm, ... very interesting ... I'll start looking :-?. Notice any pattern emerging on those "a=b" numbers? Do we have any records on those?

Not sure what you mean by a=b numbers.

I mean the numbers like ?5=12? or ?3=9? etc. ? often seen on butt of neck or in body cavities on Fender copies ? if we collected enough of those, then a pattern would surely emerge :-? .
