I'm selling my strat, is it bad to give the whole serial number? I see them blurred out on a lot of auctions on ebay.

the reason it's not a good idea to give the serial number out is that if people see it they may try to use the number to make a fake and when people research the number it comes up as a genuine

Ok, so it's fine to give out if someone wants to verify if it's real, right? Just don't post it online for the world to see?

i've noticed that on ebay as well.

anybody can make up genuine fender serial numbers by looking on various websites so i don't understand why this should be.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.
