Hi,

I just humbly entered the elite club of EBMM owners by buying a Silo 2nd hand. (See Avatar) Can anybody help me with interpreting the serial number (90227)? When was this guitar built ?

Secondly, I am a little confused because of the neck. It looks great and has nice birds eyes, however, it is lacquered ?!? Has that been done as a mod opr where there orginally lacquered MM necks?:confused:

Thanks for the help !

Welcome aboard and congrats on scoring that beauty!

In order to get more information about your Silo you can post you guitar's serial here...

...and the awesome guys at EBMM customer service will take care of it.

As for the lacquered neck...your Silo happens to be a pretty early one where the necks indeed were finished (same with the early Morses)...does it have a 6-bolt neck also? Don't know when exactly the transition to the oil/wax treatment happened but your Silo is easily 18 years old...

I looked this serial number up in our database and it was done March 7, 1990...we started producing the unfinished necks in 1991
