    Main reason most serial numbers are removed is because the guitar was stolen at some point in its lifetime,

    also battery compartment would indicate the guitar orginally had emg's.  that would explaing the black and not zebra pickups.


    EDIT - I was informed by the dealer 6 string that they had on occasion recieved sample and prototype guitars directly from esp that did not have a serial number, or sometimes had a serial number that was just a sticker on the back of the headstock.
