Seagull guitar serial number dating
1108093001 I’m not sure of the reason why these two numbers are separated but they are.
The third and fourth digits represent the month that the guitar was built in.
The use of the number '0' in all the previous models tends to bear this out.
There may well be other typo's in these numbers, but they are as good as it gets folks! There is the model LM missing from the letter codes, fore runner to the SJM I believe. March 2007, I have had it confirmed that the 'F' did exist, I have seen one, thanks to Mike Williams for showing it to me! For a long time I suspected it was not a 'W' but in fact an inverted 'M', and yes I have seen a few, but new light has dawned, from Frank Arnold.
Hopefully this has helped you to understand your serial number(s) on your Taylor Guitar(s).
With apologies for the poor quality, we have reproduced this list directly from the original manuals.
