  1. Did some more research. Saw the Used stamped on the headstock which seems to indicate that it was sent to mirc and refurbished there. That's why the serial number doesn't match Epi numbering. They give it a new serial to prevent anyone from going back to Epi for warranty work. So it looks like it is legit after all, just a Peerless factory second in a color that seems largely undocumented. Gonna take a look at it Tuesday! Thanks for the help!
  2. Wow. That's pretty interesting. So based on the pics you can see in the ad from the original post, you think it looks legit? If so, I think that's gotta be a decent deal.
  3. But was that Gibson or Epi? The Gibson has come in a few flavors, including natural. I can't seem to find any record of an Epi in natural. Which is too bad. I like the look of that a lot more than the Sunburst. And of course, that CL deal is a little too good to be true ;)
  4. I saw that too. And that serial number doesn't look right for an Epi either, does it?
  5. Looking to get my first acoustic and eyeing this find on CL: [http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/msg/4731543203.html/url] My only concern is that I can't find any references to a natural finish on an Epiphone anywhere! There's a Gibson with a natural finish, but I don't see any Epi ones in the interwebs. Think this a knock off??
  6. Thanks. I didn't think it would be a problem, but with forgeries so rampant, I was worried that perhaps people would be trying to get legit serial numbers to use for nefarious purposes. Appreciate the help.
  7. I've done quite a bit of selling on eBay and Craigslist, but this is my first time selling guitars. Selling some Gibson's, and given that I purchased them legitimately I know they're 100% genuine. However, I have a potential buyer that is asking for the serial number to make sure that it's genuine. Is there any reason that I shouldn't provide it to a potential buyers? Just making sure that there aren't people just trying to acquire legit serial numbers to scam other people or something weird like that. In other words, when selling a guitar is that considered standard practice, to provide the serial number to potential buyers? Thanks in advance!
  8. I'm just getting started, but try to get in about 45-60 minutes a day. Biggest challenge is that I travel a lot. So lately I've been takinga beater acoustic with me just to keep getting time on strings. If it gets crushed by an airline, I won't cry :)
  9. Anybody know what strings come standard on a 2013 MIII?
  10. Have one at my house (long story), but I'm too much of a newb to do a good comparison. Would pics help? If so, let me know and I"ll take some for you.
