    Default KM-1500 Serial Number

    I know kentucky serial numbers are not reliable, but does anyone have an educated guess when KM-1500 #302 14 may have been made.

    2014? purely a guess. You might try to contact Saga, they are pretty good at responding.

    Pictures of the mandolin and the serial # label might help narrow it down.
    "I play BG so that's what I can talk intelligently about." A line I loved and pirated from Mandoplumb

    I have serial number prefixes 208, 304, 305, and 306 in my collection. My opinion is 302-14 is circa 1983, an apparent great year for the Maruko factory. How does it sound?
