Would I be correct in assuming that my Deacon s/n 4004 would be the fourth earliest made? Thanks

If you mean the fourth ever produced, sorry, but no. Your Deacon (E 4004) most likely has the small humbuckers, whereas the earlier Deacons have the extremely large single coil pickups. The switchover occurred around E 2100's serial numbers. According to an Ovation Representative, the numbers were sequential for production, but that's all. For more info, check out the website below and click on Serial Number Registration, then Solidbodies, and look at the Breadwinners and Deacons section:

Or here in the FAQ and you will see it was made in 1973 if it had the E-XXXX serial number.
