The serial can sometimes help, but not always. The details of construction and components are inportant in helping to determine the model. Features such as color of finish, a bound or unbound fingerboard, binding color and type on the body, color of plastic parts, gold or silver hardware, headstock ornamentation, fingerboard marker type and color, type of tuning machines, type of bridge, type of pickups/covered or uncovered humbuckers, type of jack plate, type of control knobs, etc.

A few more details, it was made in 2012. The guy supposedly bought it, opened the box to make sure it was the right guitar, and boxed it back up and stuck it in storage. I believe it, it's flawless.
Well, flawless except for the ding down to the wood I put on it within 5 minutes of playing it. It met the metal corner of my Roland JC-120. (the ding is on the back, the white line on the front in the picture is just a reflection)
Like the look of that Special too, and the V (Korina?), and the 70's hardtail strat.
Thanks! I think the V is mahogany stained to look like the original Korinas from the late 50s, but I'm not 100% certain on that.
I'm really amazed at how light the V is. I always assumed they would be heavy. It's turned into one of my favorite guitars, I can't wait to use it live. (if I ever get a live gig again, curse you, Covid)

False alarm for me. Someone sold the Gibson LP some time ago. Claimed to only get $700. I doubt that. But there were 3 other there. And Epiphone Invader? Sent serial to them for year. And Aria Pro Cardinal Series, never heard of them. Then a beat up G&L Skyhawk. Heard of them, not this model. Sent THEM and Email with serial #. From what I searched the Epi and Aria(Japanese guitar) maybe worth only about $400 - $500. The G&L about $750 - $1K. I told him I will let him know what I find out and he's on his own to sell them. Also just remembered to ask if there was an amp laying around. Oh well. One can dream.
