Hi everybody.

I've had a JS-1 in my possession for 20 years, I bought it second hand as a teenager. From what I've researched online I suspect it to be 1990/91 and it looks identical to others of that time.

Weird thing is; it has no serial number. Where the number should be, the plate is just clear - it's smooth if you run your finger over it so I'd never suspected that it'd been scratched off or anything sinister etc.

I wondered if anyone else has encountered this or could shed any light?

Many thanks

Here's another. Just got a JS-1 and no serial numbers. Neck plate is just plain metal. Neck says "JS-1" and neck pocket just "S".

People keep, swap, switch plates all the time with used guitars. There's no way to say what it left the factory with.

I also have a '91 540R LTD that has no serial on the plate. I am the 3rd owner. It's a H&S build though, Maybe that's why?

If it has a serial number on the headstock which yours should then it won't have a plate number. No point.
