No serial number on SG2000

Hi everyone, here's a question for ya. I've been looking to buy a new guitar and have looked at a few Yahama SG2000's on Ebay. I got my SG2000 out the other day and couldn't find a serial number on it anywhere. Does anyone know why this could be? Have I been playing a fake all these years? Any info would be greatly appreciated, cheers, Pete.

Mmm, there is definitely no sign of a serial # absolutely anywhere on it. Oh well!

Could it be a prototype?

Have you checked where the neck screws onto the body? i/e unscrew the neck and look for any signs of a S# where the neck was. Some guitars put their serial numbers there, so you may want to try it.

If you have any sign of screws around the neck then i think you might have a copy, wern't these all straight through necks? i think the neck went all the way through the body as 1 peice, well the neck maybe multi laminate but they definatly wernt screw on.
I remember they weighed a ton as well, a bit more than a Les Paul.

Some Jaanes guitars used to have serial numbers on stickers on the back of the headstock. Could it be that it had one and it's been removed?

I thought they were either glued-in necks (a la Gibson) or else through-necks.
