I've got an XV 900 that'is my favorite guitar but some things have puzzeled me..
1 it has no seiral number anywhere that I can see.
2 It has no label inside the f hole
3 I found a little piece of paper inside with some Asian writing on it ,my wife is Chinese so I asked her what it said. She told me she could not read it because the writting is Korean .

It’s a baragain guitar only sold online. Why does it need a serial number or a label? Do you think they’re doing serious quality control on these guitars or trying to prevent counterfeiting?

my sons XV-910 doesn't have a serial number, the only thing it has is a bit of paper glued inside the F-hole with the model number and Made In China written on it.

The thing is, if it gets stolen, the cops won't do anything if they don't have a serial number, at least around hear. So I put a note in the control cavity with my driver's license number. You could also put your own number on it with an embosser or something.

In my experience, they won't do anything irrespective of serial numbers.
The original XV900s were made in Korea, I think they're made in China now. Is it few years old? Gumby-shaped headstock with a metal plate on the face? Mine's Korean, and it's agreat guitar. I have some of the Chinese Xavieres, which are good to excellent, but none has matched the fit and finish of the Korean one.
