Modern serial number confusion...

Post by Arty » Sat Jun 21, 2014 4:38 pm

Hi all, apologies if this has been answered before...

I am trying to clarify if the last four digits on modern Orange's are month/year or year/month. Ive seen info to suggest that BOTH are correct! My Thunderverb is 12 07 but there is no way its only 2yrs old so it must be Dec 07. I have also seen other Tverbs that are 03 09 for example, which has to be 2009 because Tverbs werent made in 2003. However, I have been told catagorically by a guy in a shop and also read on here that it is year/month!? ...can someone clarify?

It has changed over the years from what I have observed. I think the last two digits are the year currently.

Month, Year, MM YY. The English way of doing it for a English amp company. Certainly since about 2003 anyway. :wink:

Ever tried to outstare a mirror?
