Hand written vs machine printed serial numbers?


Recommended Posts

My son received a Gibson SJ200 for his birthday.

I noticed that the serial number is machine printed.

All the serial numbers I see in the photos posted here are hand written.


Here is the information on the guitar that I was able to look up:

Model: SJ200 –Serial # 10062050

Guitar Info

Your guitar was made at the

Bozeman Plant , MA, USA

January 6th, 2012

Production Number: 50


So my question is, "Is the machine printed serial number a clue that the guitar could be a fake?"
