How to find date of birth of National electric

Postby Hublocker » Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:10 pm

I have a National electric guitar from approximately 1960 but I'm not sure of it. I've seen a photo of Jimmy Reed with a similar one.

Is there somewhere i can track the serial number?

It is T14567 by the way.

1959 T5000-T25000

I'd say that if yours is T14567, that would put it in 1959.

Got it in a local record store for my daughter close to 20 years ago from the owner who traded a few vintage guitars out of the shop window.

She's grown up and moved out. The guitar stayed.

Anyone know the model name? I can't find a similar model on the 'net no matter where I look.

I have an old Airline with a very similar shape. 3 pickups and a sunburst finish, though. Cool sounding guitars.
