Hey guys, I'm interested in a Masterbilt AJ-500R on ebay. The seller has been very cooperative, but when I requested a picture of the serial number in the soundhole he said that the factory refurbisher is required to replace the serial number by Epiphone. While this seller has 100% approval on well over 1k sales, and seems honest, I'm curious as to whether this statement is true. Here's the link to the listing, as well as the picture of the serial -- any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

Epiphone Masterbilt AJ 500R Advanced Jumbo Acoustic Guitar 711106260488 | eBay -- original listing


(these three attached pictures were sent to me from the seller per my request -- including the serial)

To my knowledge they do that so you cannot submit a warranty claim on it for the defect that was repaired, or something like that.

It is usually stamped "B-stock" or "Used".
