As they were building similar models on the same line at the same time, we often see this kind of glitches between the model and the stamped number.
- Usually you will find two stamps inside your Harmony guitar.
They always are on a place easy to read, ie near the f-holes on a archtop.
The first part of the serial number has no precise meaning relative to the date of production.
It seems Harmony reset these numbers in every batch of the model, so a "6690H22" can be older than a "123H22" for example.
This new function will try to match the serial number against older formats, details required for an exact match are listed in yellow.
Please post any comments, particularly bugs in the user feedback section.
