Ibanez jem 10th ann with no serial number on back of headstock??

I recently just purchased an Jem 10th anniversary. The guitar is super clean, but I noticed there is no serial number on the back of the headstock?? is this normal on some, or maybe the previous owner scrapped it off? i was looking at pictures of some on the net and noticed the difference.

dont think it suposed to have 1 on the headstock m8, i thought the 10th serial was on the plaque/pickguard.

Maybe your 10th was a stolen one... na, probably sanded, there should be a serial that's for sure

It should indeed have a serial number starting with F96 on the back of the headstock, at least on a stock model. It could be a replacement neck, as I'm not sure if they put serial numbers on those (Rich would know).

3rd pic from the bottom on this page shows the back of a 10th headstock w/ the serial. This is also a tragic 10th....I love beat to **** guitars, my 7V is all tore up, but this one makes me squirm.

Is the neck sanded down? When peoples and down the neck sometimes they want to sand it all off of the back

I think it would be very very hard to recreate a Jem 10th body with all the engraving and stuff, so I think the chance of that is next to 0

Stolen- maybe. If so you have a moral dilemma on your hands

The 10th neck is sanded in it's original state (silk matte/satin).

There IS a second serial number on the guitar, which is on the pickguard and the COA, which were the 1 out of 752 (I think that's the number) serial's. It'd be incredibly hard to replicate an authentic looking pickguard and COA for a JEM10.
