From about 1949 to 1957 watch for a white rectangular label that reads: The serial number will probably be printed in red, and the model number written in blue or black.The label has a fairly ornate border around it, but the "Gretsch" is usually printed in a plain font.For example, 27136 should be February (2), 1967 (7) and the 136th instrument made that month. (i.e., 1974 would be 4) Last 3 digits = number of the instrument.A hyphenated number was embossed on the back of headstock. For example, 3-8094 would be March (3), 1978 (8) and the 94th guitar made that month. The next three digits are the model number, without the 6 at the beginning.Date-coded serial numbers are typically found stamped on the back or top of the headstock, and "Made in USA" is stamped next to the number starting in June 1967. The next digit = last digit of the year (1966 to 1972: 6,7,8,9,0,1,2).The remaining digits = number of individual instrument, probably.After World War II, some guitars had a serial number embossed on the head, but reliable numbers didn't really appear until the advent of the first labels, around 1949.Early labelled Gretsches will usually have a printed serial number and a handwritten model number.

When Fender took over production in January 2003 the serial number scheme changed again, and Fender-era serial numbers have a two-character originating factory code, followed by year and month, and finally a sequential ordering number.

As of July 2011, the current thinking is that the first digit probably denotes the year, while the following numbers remain a mystery.

This only pertains the pre-Fender Korean-made guitars.

This sticker, along with the "Made in Korea" sticker, went missing almost immediately — sometimes before the guitar even left the store.

In addition, these guitars followed no known numbering scheme.
