How Can I Tell the Age of a Guitar?

How can one tell how old the guitar is?

ANSWER

The manufacture date of a guitar can usually be determined from the serial number. Every guitar manufacturer has its own unique system of cataloging
serial numbers.

If you know the make of your guitar and the serial number, you can do a web search for (for example) "Gibson Serial Numbers" and you will find several resources for determining the age of your guitar.
