Electric Guitars/Year of manufacture


I have spent several hours searching for the answer to this question.  I have an Epiphone Zephyr Regent electric guitar and need to verify an approximate value for shipping purposes.  The serial number is 65249, located on a sticker under the f-hole.  If you can help, it will be much appreciated.

Hey Jenny,

Thanks for writing. According to the serial number, this guitar was made between 1952-53. This model from this year sells for between $3,000 and $9,000 US Dollars. Let me know if you need more information. I would value it at around $6,500 for shipping purposes. Stay in touch...Johnny
