ES 110

Thanks!!
Porry

Does it have a made in Japan stamp on the back of the headstock ?? I'd say it's real if it has one, probably a special order model. Switch tip has been replaced.

Yes, but how can I find the year?

https://ibb.co/hPkBvH

I would presume 2009 (from the serial number 09xxxx) but the owner claims 2013 at least.

Also, it looks like (from the nameplate) the Bigbsy was mounted from Tokai itself and not done afterwards ....

Thanks!!

That's the real McCoy.
Special order factory Bigsby.
2009 (year) made.
