the serial number on the neckplate of my Albert Lee is 97686
the database says its a Manufactured April 11th, 1996
Model GUITAR SILHOUETTE SPECIAL MAPLE SSS STND
is something wrong??
I just pumped that S/N into the online too- it came up AL SSS as well.
That is a great guitar! I have a pinkburst from 1994 and love it. (Though I added a Silent Circuit to it myself.)
