guitar - 6 digit serial number on a thunder II guitar? Empty 6 digit serial number on a thunder II guitar?

Post by redguitar13 Tue Jul 05, 2011 2:36 pm

I got a thunder II about 4 months ago, and since then, I have been wondering about the specifications of it, which i cannot determine as I cannot find any information on a 6-digit serial number, only 5, 7, and 8 digits. Could anyone help me with this? Thanks. The serial number is 108052.

Hello "red" and welcome here.
If you've seen the Home page of WestoneGuitars.net we say that 7 digits are the most common (either with or without letters). But that doesn't mean that there could not be 6 digit numbers too.

Unless a forum member has better information (in which case it should be submitted for publication Wink ) I would suggest that the interpretation of 6 digits would be the same as for 7 with the first number indicating the year of manufacture. In your case, 1981.

It would help a lot if you could post some pictures for a better identification. Very Happy

I have a 6-digit Thunder II too, anyone has some more information about this one? It turns out to be quite difficult to find more on the internet, but would be more than interesting to know more about it!

Yep, looks like 1981. Strap button is on the top of the horn on all early ones, first giveaway. Then they modified it. Stop it coming unfastened.

I've encountered a 6 digit serial number on a Westone guitar, too - an early Japanese one judging by the spec in comparison with the early catalogues etc.
