    The modern Ampegs of the St. Louis Music era were all made after 1985. The amps made since 1988 have a 10-digit serial number which is encoded for model, country, date, and year. The serial number can be broken down as follows:

    Digits 1, 2, 3 = Model

    Digit 4 = Country Code where:
    U = U.K.
    D = domestic U.S.
    W = worldwide
    Y = Europe

    Digit 5 = Year where:
    A = 1988
    B = 1989
    C = 1990, etc.

    Digit 6 = Month where:
    1 through 9 = January through September
    0 = October
    A = November
    B = December

    Digits 7, 8, 9, 10 = serial number
