Question: How do you tell the age of a Martin guitar?

The number in the left-side column is the year, and the number following the year is the last serial number used in that given year. Serial number 8349 for example, would be the first guitar built in 1899.

What does 000 mean in guitars?

000 / OM. Shallower than a dreadnought (see right) at around 105mm (4.1) and narrower in width, the 000 (also known as an auditorium) brings the body closer to the player. As theres not as much mass to curve your strumming arm around, it feels more intimate and comfortable for stage use too.
