What's wrong with this J-200 (1970-1972)


Recommended Posts

I'm considering purchasing this J-200 which I believe is a 1970 - 1972. Serial number engraved with Made In USA engraved on headstock is No. 727894. 

See pics here: https://www.pinterest.com/AngusYoung555/j200/

Played it yesterday and think it sounds good but a few small details seem off.  First, the back of the guitar has two stickers instead of one. In my research, every single J-200 only has one running down center of the guitar. Second, the neck seems to be two pieces of wood, is this normal? Also, the joint in the back of the guitar is a slightly off - it doesn't line up so that it's perfectly smooth. 

Any thoughts about these issues? I don't think it's fake but the double sticker is odd. 

Thanks in advance.
