This one says "#1" on the headstock but it could have easily been called "#2" since I had to do almost everything twice. Some day this #1 will be pretty valuable. It is actually one of my better sounding guitars (completely by accident). The glass bead on the headstock is there so you can hang it from a wall guitar mount... and it's also there for looks. Each DGA guitar has an engraved dog tag mounted to the headstock with the model number and/or title. It has sort of become my own branding element.
