While changing strings on the Craigslist Kelly I picked up (see other thread) I took the neck off to shed some light on the guitars pedigree.
I confirmed it was a KE3 model but was surprised to find it was a 2003 model rather than a mid 90s that was suggested.
I also confirmed it is a solid piece of Adler with a Maple top for the transparent finish.
But, what on earth do the rest of the stamps and markings mean?
And, does anything indicate where it was made? My suspicion is Japan but with the sticker missing I have no clue and of course the 2003 catalog was mum on the subject.
Maybe someone has the answers.
