    Great guitar! Nobody here on the forum will be able to tell you anything better than what EBMM have already told you. Personally, I don't recall stamped serial numbers on of a headstock on any guitar...

    My 2005 Silhouette Special has plenty of use for more than 9 years (and it had at least two owners before that). That included gigging and rehearsals and teaching. Still no need of a refret. Soon,...

    Only if I'm doing it! :D

    But seriously, I've been that guy. With many brands, factory setup is a myth, even at top prices. Having a dealer look over it can make sure the guitar is in good playing...

    It does seem counterintuitive and I know plenty of people of who disagree. Me, I learned "tune up to pitch" and never changed when I got locking tuners, and I'm happy. I suspect that may be the case...

    Your instinct is correct in that a small truss rod adjustment cannot on its own solve a tuning issue. It's possible the strings just needed to settle/stretch in a little. That probably happened...
