enoboi e.

Hello guys. I just wanna buy this guitar but i need some information. Some of the EC-256 models have the model number on the 12th fret, but others don't. And there is a lot of models. Made in indonesia, vietnam, china.. Is there any differences? Which one is better? I really dont know. Need some help. Thank you!

I am looking at one that does not fit any of these serial number configs....it starts with WI then 8 numbers....is it possible it’s fake?



Anthony, do you have any photos of the guitar?
