Hi,

Is it possible to look up somewhere in the internet what year my Supergroup was made in? I have the serial number & batch number.

Check the date codes on the mustard caps, the first two characters will give you the earliest possible date it could have been built. The first character is a letter denoting the quarter of the year, the second is the last digit of the year and the third character is another letter, which you can ignore. e.g. B9N would be second quarter of 1969, D1W would be the last quarter of 1971 and so on. It is assumed you know in which decade it was made. 8)

The serial number is missing from my SG, but the batch number is 282. The codes on the mustard caps date it to 1971.
