The Goodall Thread (Serial Numbers, Pictures, Discuss Anything Goodall!)
 
UPDATE: This thread has been expanded to include discussions and pictures of Goodall guitars. So feel free to post anything Goodall related! :guitar:





With "The Goodall Forum" no longer operational, we lost the "Serial No. Database" thread". It was a joint effort from actual Goodall guitar owners to compile a list of Goodall serial numbers with matching completion dates. It was very helpful in approximately dating a Goodall guitar. Jean is usually very quick to respond to inquiries, but most of the time I didn't find the need to bother her anymore because of that thread.

I am hoping to revive it here and have included Goodalls that I have previously and currently own in the list below.

FAQs:

Q: What year did Goodall switch from using nitrocellulose lacquer to catalyzed urethane for their finishes?
A: Although we now use a finish that is impervious to finish checks, we used a high quality nitrocellulose lacquer from 1972 when we started building until 1998. Nitrocellulose lacquer was used on Goodall guitars from 1972-1998 in model numbers up to model number 1573 (exceptions: KJ1550, RS1545, RGC1564). Catalyzed Urethane has been used exclusively since 1998. -James Goodall (Courtesy of Montesdad and Vschwagers)

Perhaps someone has a copy, or screen grab of the page from the forum.

Yeah, that would really be helpful to kick things off.

I have 3781, ZCJC (ziricote concert jumbo cutaway) but I don't see a date on it.

James does not really put a date on his label.
Based on the list above, I would venture to say that yours was probably built around July 2004. That's the beauty of this thread. ;)

Wow Larry! You have more Goodalls than what was registered in the original list! By the way, I still can't get one of your CJs off my mind. :)

Yeah, we should convert this to an Excel spreadsheet and share it via Google Docs.

Martz911 07-09-2014 06:50 AM

Oh, no! I don't own all these Goodalls now. ;)

They are serial numbers and build dates from guitars I have owned in the past, knew about, or actually do own at this time.

Chedeng88 07-12-2014 10:19 PM

Any other Goodall owners out there? :)

guitararmy 07-13-2014 04:49 AM

I have a rosewood jumbo RJ 1425 that I bought used.....I didn't realize it was that old!

Chedeng88 07-26-2014 11:21 AM

Bump for other Goodall owners. :)

Bearclaw Spruce 07-26-2014 11:32 AM

What happened to the Goodall forum?

jseth 07-26-2014 12:51 PM

#6026, August 10, 2011...

The "Goodall Forum" has not been endorsed or supported by James Goodall for some time now... James told me that the fellow who owned/ran it tried to pull some sort of shennanigans with him, regarding one of James' guitars that had been mistreated... due tot hat disagreement, James and he had a falling out and, as such, the Goodall Forum kind of withered away... recently, I saw that someone was trying to "sell" the Goodall Forum? Never quite "grokked" that concept, but there you go...

Basically? There ain't no Goodall Forum, no mo', no mo'...
