Hi all first post and looking for advice

I am buying an ES130 from the mid 2000s which looks great and
Correct with an original Tokai case and orange label stating model and serial number.

There is no serial number impressed or
Inked into the back of the headstock , but it does have MIJ inked under the clearcoat.

Is the serial number not being in headstock a reason to be doubtful on its own? Thanks for taking your time to reply

Have you looked for the sticker in the F-hole?

Sure yes it has the correct sticker in the f hole with serial and
Model number. It's really just the lack of a serial number on the headstock I'm querying

That's actually not correct.... ES models did have serial numbers on the head stock and on the label. Not sure when they stopped though.

Not sure when they stopped stamping the serial, but since 2009 the serial is only on the Red Label.
