Sticker over serial number. Anyone?
I just looked at a THunderchief in excellent condition all around.
While looking for the serial number, a label inside showed the model number on the right, but where the serial number should have been was a tape strip with printed numbers, 9 in all(311525539)
We decided to check under the strip and slowly removed it in one piece. Under it was a serial number handwritten on the label as the model number had been. Unfortunately, the last two or three numbers came up under the label or where missing from the past. WHat now shows is K1945, which looks like the start of a 2007 serial number.
The bass otherwise is beautiful, plays great and a good price.
Anyone have any idea why there would be such a sticker, the purpose? WHat of the remaining number? Would there be a reason to obscure the last few numbers.
Can we solve the mystery. I can send a few photos but you should have the idea from this....
