I have an Epiphone G400 Custom that I purchsaed new in October of 2010. I was curious to know which factory it was made in, and I've found a bunch of resources to do so, but I'm having a little trouble. According to the dealer (Sweetwater) the guitar was made in Korea. When I got the guitar, there was a Made in Korea sticker on the back of the headstock. However, there isn't a letter at the beginning of the serial number, which every source I have seen says is only on guitars made in Japan. I could be wrong but I thought only the Elitist models were made in Japan? Does anybody else know of any Korean made guitars with no factory code in the serial number? Also, my serial number is 10 digits and I haven't run across anything online discussing epiphones with anything other than 9 digit serial numbers. Does anybody have any information that might help me out?

Epi changed from letter prefix serial#s to non-letter prefix serial#s
