For example, 946119-976 would be a June 1994 Tennessee Rose, the 976th made.
The remaining digits = number of individual instrument, probably.
For example, 27136 should be February (2), 1967 (7) and the 136th instrument made that month. (i.e., 1974 would be 4) Last 3 digits = number of the instrument.

If you mean vintage guitars, there are numbers on the pots that can be dated if you can read them. Also, new solder is generally obvious, but can be faked.Gretsch began date-coding serial numbers in August 1966.Date-coded serial numbers are typically found stamped on the back or top of the headstock, and "Made in USA" is stamped next to the number starting in June 1967. The next digit = last digit of the year (1966 to 1972: 6,7,8,9,0,1,2).I've heard that to properly date your vintage guitar, aside from serial number, is to remove the black plate and check the pot (potentiometer) codes which are generally 6-7 digits.Now that being said, who's to say those posts are originals?Remember that 20 guitars will, of course, not begin with a 9.Also, on guitars built in October, November or December, the third AND fourth digits denote the month.not online, or in-person S Single SBF Single black female SBi F Single bisexual female SBM Single black male SD Social drinker SGL Single SI Similar interests SO Significant Other SOH Sense of humor STDs Sexually transmitted diseases STIs Sexually transmitted infections STR Straight SWF Single white female SWM Single white male TG Transgendered TLC Tender loving care TS Transexual TV Transvestite Umfriend a sort of, not really friend VBD Very bad date W Widowed or Whitew/ With WAA Will answer all Wingman see What is a Wingman?Gretsch used several different serial number schemes through the years.FYI For Your Information G Gay GBM Gay black male LGBT or GLBT Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgendered GLBTQIA gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, questioning, intersexed and ally GSOH Good sense of humor GWM Gay white male H Hispanic HNG Horny Net Geek Hookup, see What is Hookup Culture?HWP Height/weight proportionate IR Interracial IRL In Real Life ISO In search of J Jewish K Kids Kino L Lesbian LD Light drinker LDR Long Distance Relationship LDS Latter Day Saints (Mormon)LS Legally separated, or Light smoker M Male MBA Married but available MBC Married black couple MM Marriage minded MSM Men seeking men, or Men who have sex with men MSW Men seeking women Mt F Male-to-female transgendered MWC Married white couple NA Native American NBM Never been married ND or N/D Non-drinker, No drinking, or No drugs Neg a backhanded compliment N/Drugs No drugs NK or N/K No kids NS or N/S Non-smoker NSA No strings attached NRE New Relationship Energy Open Relationship P Professional, or Parent PA Personal Attachment or Pleasing Appendage Pan pansexual Pansexual where gender is irrelevant Peacocking attracting attention through props and clothing PC Politically Correct, Personal Computer PD Public Display of Affection PDA Public Display of Affection Poly polyamory POSSLQ Person of opposite sex sharing living quarters RL Real Life, i.e.
