    11=year
    07=month
    20=factorycode (Unsung or DaeWon, China)
    409..=ranking/batch/whatever

    the N at the end makes no sense
    probably 11 ?

    Thanks paruwi! I greatly appreciated your quick response on the serial #! Having a tough time deciding between the expense of the Gibson Tribute and the practicality of the Epiphone. Like the 60's slim tapers, 57 classics, and good mahogany body/maple caps. BTW when did EPI stop using real mahogany?

    Never, they still call the asian mahogany 'mahogany' just like all other manufacturers.....
