    One of the 294 Guitar Center locations. That's a hang tag, it wouldn't be there if the guitar wasn't put on display in a brick & mortar store at some point.

    You mean it's possible to overcome one's Irish ancestry ?
    And why would you want to?

    Back then did you register your new guitar with Fender for the warranty? If you did, it would have asked where it was bought. Worth a go?

    The answer to this mystery will never be revealed because someone removed the critical information that was in the lower left corner. Someone did not want the us to know.

    Well. If you google the number it's a phone number in Rome, Italy. You then google Guitar Center Italy and there's a used "Italia" guitar in the store in Columbus Ohio. So, I deduce that you guitar was sold at Guitar Center in Columbus OH.

    Guinness please!

    An application (program) that runs on your device. Go to GC online and read about it. It might help or not.

    Usually, the first three numbers in a string of numbers is the guitar center store number. IE my local GC is store #113. Have you looked up GC store number 110?

    Is yours 'Palmdale', as a matter of interest?

    Providing Google is correct – then, 110 is Hollywood, California!! https://stores.guitarcenter.com/hollywood

    Is the Guinness mine!?!? You don't have very far to send it!!!

    This method DOES appear to work... if you Google this, Dave:

    Guitar Center store number 110

    and – Guitar Center store number 113
    and – Guitar Center store number 112
    and – Guitar Center store number 119

    ...and so on, each search will bring up a different Guitar Center!

    ALL credit goes to @GaryM :thumb: !

    It's all gone a bit quiet in here all of a sudden? If I were to guess – I might guess that SOMEBODY (DAVE!!!!!!!!!!) is a little concerned that they might *actually* have to pay out on 8 pints of Guinness?!?

    Anybody?

    DAVE!?!?!?!?!?

    Nah I'm only messing with you Dave – I do appreciate it though, and I have no doubt you would keep your word – but I'm WAY too far from Dublin to be calling these particular pints in!!! I'll tell you what though... if I *do* happen to be right, and in theory – win 8 pints of Black Gold, I would like to donate them.. to you!!!!

    How does that sound!? Deal?

    A bargain. 15 quid is less than 2 Guinnesses here.
