    The sn is 7 01xx. Its being sold without a COA. I have to drive 2 hrs to go see it and that would make a difference. Can anyone tell from these pics? Someone said a 2000 will have rounded inlays and a 2010 sharp inlays. Thanks

    That case indicates a 2010

    And why would it make a difference? If the guitar feels good, sounds good, and the price is right, who cares. They would be worth about the same anyway. $2200-$2500 would be your number for a decent deal.

    After looking at the pictures again, my money would say it's a 2010, and again, if that's the original case, that confirms it.

    Just confirmed its a 2010. Thanks guys. Also had him look at the caps and he also called Gibson. You guys were right about the original case as well.

    Already sussed out by Jon, but the inlays and tuner orientation point to 2010. Did you get it?

    Inlays are the first thing I noticed.

    OP, you're dying to close the deal. Just take the plunge! Buy once, cry once! (At least until the next time)
