Can anyone tell me anything about a Fender Acoustic guitar, called a Gemini II ? The serial number (8301300) can be seen on the interior of the body on a round sticker. This is also where the model name (Gemini II) can be seen. My father owns this guitar and he believes it to be about 30 years old or so. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

here's mine

it will be from 1983 (first 2 digits are the year) which means likely made in Korea (Samick factory I thnk). It's an excellent guitar, very good tuners that will keep it in tune forever, and damn near indestructible. Has a urethane finish which some will frown on, but on this instrument it doesn't affect the sound badly at all. it's worth having it set up to suit your prefences. I got mine new in 84, and it's honesty just coming into itself in sound quality now. Put new strings on it, it deserves some quality brass. Dean Markley's sound very good on it.[/img]

edit: I inadvertanly typed 'Indonesia' in my post. This one is made in Korea.

I was reading about another person on here that owns a Gemini II and they had a serial # with 6 or 7 numbers and they were told the first 2 numbers are the year it was made? My serial number is 00000710 can anyone tell me more info about my axe? This was my fathers and as far as I know he bought it when I was about 6 or 7 years old, about 28 years ago. What I've read about this axe is true, it almost never needs tuning and the sound has gotton better with time, I have 4 boys and traveled a lot with this axe and it seems almost indestructble. Thanks for the info!
