I noticed that that link doesn't have the location of where it was manufactured, it just tells you how to read the ID... If a simplified version of this thread was stickied, would it be like the introduction topic. It's not made by epiphone like the rule sticky, but its just making it easier for people to access user submitted content that could otherwise be seen on other sites on the internet.
If Gibson/Epiphone has an outline of Guitar ID's, then could that be placed as a sticky? I think people would feel a lot better with the info coming from them and not a 3rd party.
