I'm thinking of buying a 2005 American series, but I'm a bit puzzled. Looks like the neck has the metal disc for the micro tilt, but not the body. Is this how they came from the factory??? Is it meant to have a white scratch plate? I don't know the full serial number, I only know that it starts with Z5. I haven't owned a guitar since I was 16, so I'm a bit out of touch.
