This guitar does not have a manufacturer's warranty.  This means it was either returned by a customer, discontinued or rejected from the assembly line of the manufacturer for a blemish, flaw or minor repair. It was sent to MIRC, the largest guitar refurbisher in the US where it was inspected by their fleet of guitar techs. In the cases of a blemish or minor cosmetic issue, no work is done. If any repairs were needed, it was repaired, inspected and set up.  They then cover up the original serial number and issue it a new one to avoid false warranty claims.  It is then stamped “USED” on the back of the headstock.  This allows us to sell you a guitar that is in great condition for well below the price of a brand new instrument. When we receive it, we inspect and test it thoroughly and include any noticeable flaws in our description. Here's some additional info from reverb and our refurbishing company:
