Guitar Serial Numbers?

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.
