    NO pictures on your post. Did you upload them in an album on Epitalk ? If so, maybe the album is not public ?

    If I recall correctly, all Epi TRC have 3 screws. But you're right about the Korean winged TRC.

    Were there ever open book headstock from Korea ?

    Looks like a 1989 Korean model. I think the serial numbers were stickers back then.

    The only other place I know for the SN is on a sticker in a (semi) hollow body or acoustic.
