Regarding our serial numbers , the terminology is the following:
ES – company
MD – model
XXXX – guitar number
Some of the early guitars had hand etched numbers. The logo has been the same from the beginning. Ultimately if someone needs to know if a guitar is original contact us; we do not sell millions so we know what is out there.” [Source: Giuseppe Coppola, ES Guitars, Long Island City, NY, email 30/10/2011]
