My dobro serial number is 8-1172-5-d. I understand the 8 is the decade (80's) and the 5 is the actual year it was made (1985) and the D means it is a wooden body. What I don't know, is what is the model? I would like to sell it but people right away ask me what model it is. Can someone please tell me?

Dobro made a buck of wooden body guitar.

Your guitar is from 1985, OMI's 1172 unit made that year.

 

Pics, there's F hole ones and round hole ones and one with a single round hole.

Some have round necks and some have square necks.

 

I have a Dobro model 33H with the bigger cone (10-1/2" cone), but they also made that with the smaller (9-1/2")

I also have a Dobro round neck F60, that was purchased pretty cheaply after the Gibson /OMI buy out. Nobody in TN really wants a round neck Dobro. So I bought.
