It seems that the newer 2010 prestige's doesnt have the 'team J craft' stamp on the back of the headstock like the older prestige's.the older 1570 with the edge pro has the stamp where as the new 1570 edge zero model doesnt(and the RGD's).does that mean that they are not made by team j craft in japan??...or is it just a marketing trick?

here is a picture of the rg1570 EP(black) with the stamp

here is a pic of the 1570 EZ(LMR) w/o stamp

and RGD 2120Z

That is the new serial sticker, in new location. I'm no fan, but that's what it is now. The TJC sticker was nothing but marketing anyway, but at least it looked good.

The STICKER is in a new location.

Nothing else has changed.

Re: Can someone explain this??

Why would you ever want to remove the serial number?

You'd have to sand or scrape it off, it's under the clear.
