Arrow 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!





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.

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.

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.

#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'...
