Is this number off of a silver foil tag or is it stamped into the headstock? If it is a foil tag, there is not really anything that can be derived from them, you have to look for other clues to date your guitar. If it is stamped into the back of the headstock, there is a code involved if it is a six or seven digit set of numbers.

This topic shows one on the other clues to possibly date your guitar. This date might be a year off depending on the stock of connectors at the factory. Other clues have to do with headstock shape, and sometimes a date stamp on one of the cables inside the cavity.
