This might be a dumb question but where would the serial number on an older Emmons steel be?

Assuming it's a Push-Pull D-10, it SHOULD be stamped in the end plate right behind the changer [underneath!]. If it's a D-10, it SHOULD be DXXXX. If it's something else, could be anything. My two D-12 PPs are SN's D116 and D127, for instance. If it's a LeGrande, I don't have a clue.

It's an S-10 from sometime in the 70s. I'm not sure on the year so I'd like to find the serial number so I can figure out more details about this guitar.

It was stamped right underneath the changers, you really need a flashlight or else theres no chance of seeing it.

Hey Joe !
I bought my S10 about August 1974...brand new Serial No 1314.......I suppose it would have been on the shelf a little while...but I would put it at early 74......now as I look at the time I have had it...I suppose I should tink about changing the strings.
Oh yeh.......its a rosewood 6x2..but I have added two knee levers....and still leave the six on the floor to give me something to mess around with!!
Hope this helps
Tony

Yeah, I had an idea it might be from the 70s but our guitars must have been made around the same time. So now I can narrow it down a little more. Better change those strings, too. Haha.

I have an Emmons double 10. I think it came out in the 60's,as there was an old country magazine in the case with some of the older country songs of that time. It was dated 1965.
I checked out my serial number and it is 1345 0. So I really don't know. Maybe someone else would know.

Chick,I really appreciate the info...
been looking for that # for a while.
Didn't have enough sense to turn the guitar upside down,so I got my exercise by laying
on the floor with a flashlite,on my elbows,
trying to get my glasses to focus,what fun;
It was right where you said it was "1743D".
Now I just need the mfg's list to know the
year it was made (I'm guessing "74")
Thanks Very Much,Wayne

When you get that mfg's list out, can you look up my 1129 S Emmons for me for the year of production, if you don't mind?
