    Hi

    I have virtually closed a deal on a pristine AV 64 in sunburst. Everything seems legit to me and the seller seems to be a nice guy, however I have a question about the stamps in the neck pocket.

    The guitar I am buying has 93578, looking at the AV 64s I had in the past it seems to me that the number should be 93579. Can it be related to the different finish ( sunburst vs Fiesta red) or is it a red flag?

    Here are some pics from the seller.
    Thanks.

    I don't have experience of that particular series (AV) but everything looks right that I can see in regard to the other stamps.

    Can you put up a pic of the whole guitar, and haefstock.?

    Should be, threaded saddles. The decal on top.of the paint is normal.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I know that everything else is perfectly fine for an AV64, my only concern is about the part number in the neck pocket.
    Hopefully some sunburst AV64 owner will chime in!

    I'd say that's what it is. I know the same series Strats the different bodies have a different part number stamp for colour, as the guitars themselves do.

    You made my day, Sir, thank you so much!

    So everything is fine with this guitar, tomorrow it will be shipped and I should receive it in three days.
