    Maybe a 2014? And the 394th instrument that year? That's just a guess based on the breakdown of serial# given? Some instrument #'s are deciphered like this.

    Sorry I can't help on the serial number, but the KM-180S was a model designation back in the 1990's. My 1993 Mandolin Brothers catalog lists it. Mahogany back and sides, sunburst top. Solid spruce top.
