How old does a guitar have to be to be considered vintage?
What is a vintage guitar? While an antique is defined as an object over 100 years old, theres no strict chronological definition of what makes something vintage. Typically, though, guitars around 30 years old or older fall into that category, and even newer instruments will often be labeled as such by sellers.
How do I know the serial number of my guitar?
Look for a serial number. On an electric guitar, youll typically find the serial number on the back of the guitar body or headstock. The serial number of an acoustic guitar may be on the back or on the label in the sound hole. The guitars serial number also may give you a clue to its value.
