    Hi Garrett,

    Thank you so much, especially for the breakdown. I was confused by the first 7. I missed that meaning CE, and have been confused for 9 years!

    Crazy, I wasn't aware they were still doing maple fretboards and "Electric" headstocks for that long.

    The neck plate may indicate 1993, but my eyes are telling me that's a 1989 CE body and neck. 3 way switch, no black headstock overlay, maple fingerboard.

    I would suggest taking the back plate off and see what the date codes are on the volume and tone controls. Also, removing the strings and pickups might indicate some other info in the cavities. Been a long time since I've had an early CE, but I thought they had something written inside. Possibly on the neck, but more likely in the lead pickup cavity. Really cool guitar no matter what.

    BTW, I'm not an expert, but the last 4 digits of the serial number would place it in 1989.

    Okay, that is massively cool. Was not aware of this. Especially with the older logo on the headstock. And yes, the marking on the neck makes it a definite 93.

    Wow.
