    Anybody have any idea on what this is? The model and S/N have been scratched out on the label in the sound hole. Have no idea why. MIK. The Gibson on the truss cover and the look seems to make it old? Any idea on value?

    I'd say it's a PR-100 or 300

    There's a thread on another forum where a member bought a used guitar and found out later that the serial number was blackened out with a marker. He wondered why anyone would do that. The seller said that he received it as a gift. Other people commented, but I didn't have the heart to tell him he was holding stolen property.

    The one that @TimTheViking is clearly fake. How can I tell? The E on the pickguard is still there.
    J/k. It's close, but it has a binding.

    OP's is a spruce top, not mahogany. The 100 & 300 are the closest matches from what I can tell and most likely has black body binding.
