Can't seem to find serial number on new GPCPA5K

just on a plastic string tag>>>

Seems like cost-reduction gone overboard.

ah found it, stamped, very very faintly on neck end block inside body

Here is a pic of my Martin 12 string made famous by appearing in the Martin Soundingboard newsletter, of course I made this one myself and it's only 7" long!

Michael, I have that ad somewhere scanned in my picture files too.  My D 12 28 is a 1980 and recently had a neck reset and an LR Baggs installed into it.  My first choice was a Fishman Matrix Infinity, but it wouldn't fit due to the bracing.  The neck reset worked wonders, although unlike my Guild 12 with 2 rods in the neck, I keep the Martin 12 tuned down a whole step!

1997, and while I bought it for filk songcircles, it really got a workout at church, with last year's new music director deciding he didn't want me to play any of my others.

the guy I got it from said the ad ran in '71, but I just looked it up and there were 27 made in 1970, and then production went into the hundreds. What year is your guitar? Mine I have is from 2002, and sadly that one doesn't get played too often..

What year is that ad from? (How old is my twelve-string's lineage?)

You can go to the Martin site and search the 00-1R for specs, JD.
