    Bought this used last year. On the back of the headstock it says "used" and the last few number of the serial number inside the F hole are blacked out. Anyone know what this means?

    It means that it was a "second". They do this at the factory, to insure that it doesn't get sold at full price.

    mine's got the same and I got it cheaper.....but... I can't find any faults/issues anywhere in mine at all.
    Looks perfect and in fact plays better than every other Sheri I've tested in stores.
    So why it was a 2nd I don't understand - must have been something miniscule inside I can't see :huh

    Are there any visible faults on yours ??

    lot of times it is a minor finish flaw, you really have to hunt or it gets hidden by playing it
