Rickenbacker Serial Number and Date Code Information


 

Serial numbers and approximate date of manufacture.

Dating Rickenbackers from 1961 to 1986

Serial letters and numbers were stamped on the jackplate.  Look for a two letter date code.  The first letter gives the year (starting with A for 1961) and the second letter is the month of manufacture, A through L.  For example "AC" = a 1961, March manufacture date.

 

Dating Rickenbacker models from 1987 to 1991

From 1987 to 1991 the dating is a little different.  Now we are looking for a letter and a number above the jack.  The code should look like "A8".  You will need the first 2 characters.  The first letter on jackplate is the month and the number is the year starting with 1987 represented by "0".  For example a A0= a January, 1987 manufacture date and C2= March 1989 manufacture date.


 

If you are serious about dating a particular Rickenbacker, we suggest getting a book on dating Rickenbacker guitars.  We have a few suggestions here - Books on Collecting Guitars -
