Made by Cort in Korea in 1996.
The rest of the serial# 102846 means the 102846 guitar (all guitars, not just 555s) made by Cort in 1996 - so you can see how productive that factory is.
Great find for $100, you can evilbay the pickups for more than that.

yea i tried talking him down and it worked. it sounds and plays awsome. looks great but has a small ding on the back. can't tell unless you stare at it. he had a bunch of cheap and crappy guitars there knock off of strats and les pauls. so i don't think he knew what he had
