Hey Everyone,

I recently inherited a Guild M65 with the serial number 9371, manufactured in Hoboken. From what I could find online, it seems like it may have been made between 1958-1959? The "Dating Your Guild" .pdf seems to have a gap for this serial number.

It's a little banged up, but it sounds great. I think that the knobs and pick guard were replaced at some point, but everything else seems to be original.

I'd appreciate any insight you all could offer regarding its date of origin!

Love it! Based on the "Guild Dating" info, it's a 1959. 8300 is the last number for 1958, 12035 is the last number for 1959.
