Guitar Serial Numbers?


Recommended Posts

Just curious about posting guitar serial numbers? Sorry of this is in the wrong forum or dumb question.


I notice that some post their serial number or pictures of it without hesitation while others obfuscate it so no one can see what it is.


My question is: What is the danger in posting your serial number? Is there a time it is OK to do so, say a newer guitar, and a time that you wouldn't want to, say with a vintage model, or does it really matter?


Thanks for any thoughts!

Yeah, it's a counterfeit defense and a theft/fraud thing.


I personally don't post entire serial numbers unless I'm selling a guitar on Ebay.

I won't buy one online unless I get a confirmation from Gibson that it's what the serial says it should be.



Easy, they're open 24/7.
