Just picked this up and I'm having trouble determining when it was made. I searched the net and this forum but with no luck. The number on the top/back of the headstock looks to be 2008. Its yellowed quite a bit and theres some small checking starting on the finish. I was told it was a 197? something?

Grissle,

Looks like you need a more complete number. 2008 (by itself) doesn't make sense from their dating charts.

S-3000 are listed 1979-1983, but the 1970 serial numbers are not broken out by model.

Looking really, really, really close, it looks like there may be 1/2 more numbers after the 2008 but they're so faint and buried buy the finish that they're only the faintest of shadows at best. So deducting that the 2008 are the first four numbers this would appear to be a '79, does this sound right?

Late 70's is about the right era (I have 60D from that period).

But, I'm far from an expert. If you want to email me I can direct you to others that have more expertise than I do.
