Thanks. I recently acquired a Savannah (which has quickly become my favorite bow, btw), SN# 6738. I e-mailed Martin customer service and gave them the SN#, and was told that the bow was manufactured in 1996. I don’t recall Savannahs being that old, so I called DH, and was told that the previous response was mistaken, and that based on the first number of the SN, the bow was produced in 2006.

But if the SN# isn’t a reliable indication, how would one verify it from a catalog?
