I am in the market for a 339 and I played this sweet 339 at guitar center today. The serial number is "ME 301036" The guys at guitar center thought it was this model http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gibson-...ric-Guitar-with-30-60-Neck-515256-i1390586.gc However this did not have the Custom shop logo on the back of the neck and the CS was lacking from the serial number. The original case is missing.. even tho this is a new guitar! Anyway I was able to get the price down to $1500 pre tax. Any idea what model this is and if its a good deal with missing case and certificate?
