I've been noticing on eBay that the majority of Boss OC-2 pedals and a good number of OC-3 pedals have no sticker on the bottom plate. The ones that do have a sticker DON'T have the serial number sticker. Some OC-2s claim to be made in Japan (but are missing the sticker to verify) and some claim to be made in Taiwan (but are missing the serial number sticker). If it was just one or two every once in awhile, I'd chalk it up to the sticker possibly getting removed when someone pulled the Velcro of the bottom of their used pedal. When MOST of them are missing the sticker--or even more suspicious--when they have the sticker but are only missing the serial number...that's make my eyebrow go up--like this Can anyone offer a legit reason why eBay is flooded with Boss octave pedals with no serial numbers?
