BigGreggo Posted January 5, 2012 Report Share Posted January 5, 2012 I recently bought a used ES 339 from Guitar Center. It's an '08 with the OHSC and not a mark on it. It looks and sounds great and I got a good deal but... it did not come with the original COA from the factory. I called Gibson to inquire about a replacement but they stated that since I was not the original purchaser, they would not replace the COA. This makes no sense to me, since I purchased it used from an authorized Gibson dealer and have a receipt with serial number to prove I purchased the guitar. Can anyone explain Gibson's policy to me? The guy I spoke with honestly didn't seem to interested in my plight. Also, what if any impact would a missing COA have on resale value down the road? I don't plan on selling it since I've bonded with it pretty heavily over the last few weeks, but there's always the dreaded "financial crises"...
