Thanks Gene for all you do. You are an amazing resource.
I have a Super Pro, serial no. 16988, with an upside-down 1 (Maybe shipped on a Monday, or a Friday, or after a two-George Dickel lunch).
Would you be so kind as to tell me the year on this one? Seems early '80s.
And thanks again!

Don't know how to load pics from phone to computer or forum yet, lol. But Amp serial number is 1644. A single channel I believe.
Thanks all 4 any help finding who might have amplifier records. Wonder who made the single channel amps for them and who distributed them?? HAPPY TRAILS. CAA

Lee, thanks for your input. Maybe. I'm not familiar with Sho-Bud serial numbers.
I could be wrong, but the way the number is oriented towards the end of the cabinet, like yours, seems like it should begin with the 1. And if it's the other way, the 8's are upside down. Try looking at the picture the other way—the 8's have a slightly larger loop on the top. Here, I did it and inserted it in the post.
And I've never heard of a Sho-Bud serial number in the 80-thousands. But maybe they changed the numbering scheme and it was the 691st guitar shipped in 1988.
Sure would be clearer if there were some 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's or 7's.
I await further enlightenment from the oracle.

I assume Lee is joking, the "1" is in fact upside down, which is kind of cool somehow.

Gene Haugh's complete serial number list is on page 11 of this thread. It's here: https://bb.steelguitarforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=1951049#1951049. Your guitar, 16988, is from August '81.
