Hi everyone, first-time poster here.

Right, I've only been playing for about 3/4 months. I was bought my guitar a few years ago but being the foolish child I was at the time decided it was too damn hard to play, so I quit. Decided to not be a pussy anymore so picked it back up and I am really enjoying learning now.

Out of curiosity I thought I would see how old my guitar was, but I just can't find out exactly. From all the time I have spent searching online I have found that it sounds as though it's from the 80s or early 90s, but I can't be sure.

Anyone got any tips on how I can find out for sure? I'm not looking to sell it or anything, I'm just so damn curious!

Thanks all!

Just take it out for coffee, you don't need anything fancy the first date. Get to know eachother!

Serious answer, though: If it's an acoustic, look inside with a flashlight for a sticker.

On the back of the head or around there there should be a serial number, you can put that into the make of the guitar's website usually. What make and model is it, do you know?

Hey now, you can't seem too eager. She may not open up on the first date.

Instant regret on using the term 'date'? The answer is yes...

It's an electric and it does have a serial number on the back but I have tried typing it into Google and all the websites I can find which claim they will date it (insert another date joke here if that pleases you) but so far nothing has been any good.

Well, what's the make, model and serial number?

Continuing the completely unfunny and absolutely humorless joke that's going on; make sure you take the strings off before you take it to bed, those babies can hurt if you get them caught in the wrong places.

Probably the best one yet to be quite honest. And that's saying something...

well i could ask my fender if it's interested in your guitar. i may need to see pics though, it doesn't like blind dates.
#15
The closest I've been able to find is someone mention they're mid 80's-early 90's. This is a lot harder than I thought it would be

I know! I thought it would be simple but apparently not!

Is Trowzaa the only helpful person here??
