    as private owners go through lengths to conceal the serial numbers of our guitars if posting pictures to forums or ads? Retailers freely post this information for prospective buyers to choose an exact instrument on the upper tier categories. What am I missing here? Why do we hide this information?

    So others can't steal the photos for phony Craigslist and ebay ads.

    Without a full serial number, the faker will have a hard time finding out certain info (the year of production) to create the fake ad.

    I'd be more worried if someone local got a hold of my serial number and then went to the police claiming I stole it from them. They can go in saying my guitar is serial blah blah blah and then it turns out their word against mine.
