take a look at the pic. it's the back of an 1997 Epiphone G-400 headstock... the seller says that's an F at the beggining of the serial number, but it seems like it has been erased somehow. what do you think??

Just a thought: I dont really see the point in making a copy of a cheap guitar when you could just as easily make a fake gibson and get a lot more money out of it.

the F isnt level with the numbers

cuz theres a little nub(lol)

+1. There is no money to be made faking Epiphones, Squiers, etc.

I dont think fake guitars were such a huge concern in 97. As in there werent huge numbers of people making the fakes like now. Cant see any money being made on a 11 year old epi as a fake.

If you look closely it had a tip bit on the left hand side as well, which means it has to be either a t or an r.
Look it up on guitardaterproject.com, try all the possible combines you think it could be then see which one is closest to the real guitar.
I love white guitars!

i think chinese copies started in 2005ish so thats prob a flaw or ink chip or whatever
