Continue Reading Like many factory made products, guitars are issued in series.
Because the manufacturer assigns a specific serial number to each instrument in production as it leaves the assembly line, instrument owners or sellers can cross-reference that serial number to its specific year or month of manufacture.
Also, only the tremolo model was produced, other than a few prototypes (see #1542).
The "stop tail" or fixed bridge model was not introduced until the 2nd year and never came in a quilt top. EVH played a Sunburst original year quilt throughout the VH3 tour and the 2004 tour.
Some archives have been lost during the owner changes.
Peavey began making instruments in 1964 and quickly expanded its production lines to include amplifiers and other musical accessories.
The company is now among the leading instrument and electronics manufacturers in the world.
With this table we have tried to make it easy for every Landola player to date his or her guitar by interpreting the serial number printed on the manufacturer's sticker located inside the guitar. manufactured pre-1961 were marked by punching the serial number to the edge of the top head.
The numbering system has changed three times along with the owner changes.
These were red, amber, purple and sunburst (shown above).
People often refer to the Sunburst as "Tobacco Burst", but to the best of my knowledge Peavey did not make a color with this name.
Serial numbers are also helpful for identifying and ordering proper parts should repairs ever become necessary.
Although an official and complete listing of Peavey serial numbers is not available on the Internet, Peavey provides a serial number forum on its website, where anyone interested in tracking down the vintage of a specific instrument can submit the serial number and request information from the factory.
