Rg3770z legit?

Hey all,

I just bought this 3770 from San Ash’s reverb store and upon receiving it, I noticed the serial number looks strange. It seems to be written in silver pen as opposed to stamped and it has the model number written on it, as well. The made in Japan stamp and the titanium reinforced neck sticker are also missing. I’ve researched as best I can and haven’t been able to find another 2010 rg prestige that looks like this. Is this normal or should I send this one back? It’s already apparent that it doesn’t have the original DiMarzio ToneZone/etc pickups. Thanks in advance.

That silvery stamp for the SN and model number isn't something I've ever seen before. Pair that with the fact that it has the wrong pickups (those are the pups from the 2570Z) and that finish that doesn't look like any stock finish I've seen, and that's too many red flags for me.

Unless it plays like an absolute dream to the point that you don't care about resale value, I'd return it for a refund if you still have the option.

That’s what I was afraid of. Thanks for the confirmation, I’m going to send it back.

It is a 3770, I have seen a serial number like that before but have no idea the why of it.
