Ok, so last July I purchased a 408 from a wild guitar store out west. Website said Pattern neck. I asked the sales person to double check for me before it shipped. He came back that it was a pattern thin neck even though the hang tag said it was a pattern neck. It was a 196XXX serial number. I ended doing a different guitar because of that. So tonight I was doing a little research on the serial number of the one I just ordered to see if I could narrow down when it was made (you know how it is when you are waiting for a guitar to come in) and found this thread...
That's a 197XXX serial number VERY close to the one I just ordered.
Does anybody know if PRS might have been making a mistake on hang tags around Jan/Feb of last year??? I know the pattern thin neck is WAY more popular than the pattern neck so some people might not have even cared if the hang tag was wrong.
This guitar is coming directly from PRS to my dealer so if it is wrong, hopefully PRS will do something to make it right even though I am getting a killer deal because the guitar is a year old. I was told that PRS cut the dealer a special deal because of that.
Oh man, I'm kinda nervous!
