There is a number 2 stamped in after finishing under the serial number. sometimes an employee would stamp a 2 into a guitar that was perfectly fine just to try and get it for a fraction of the price from the factory. now a days these guitars get sawn up and no one gets them, not even a dishonest employee.
We don't see any reason why a 2 would be on this one.
