Your Celebrity CC44 was manufactured in China in 2013.
First serial numbers being "C13"
Other than that, I cannot get more specific.
Maybe May 14th?

That one is Older.
Back in those days, Asian serial numbers did not really mean anything.
There was no "system" to those numbers back then.

So Sorry.

Okay... Soon after Fender bought Ovation the serial numbers on Celebrity guitars changed.
So your 311712899 guitar is probably older than 2010.
