So the problem is someone could easily counterfeit the serial #. They might use a real serial from a different instrument.

Your best bet is to post some good photos here so we can see the actual instrument.

You can go to fender.com and try to Register that serial number. If the number exists in their system the guitar that number is dedicated to will automatically pop up...If the description fits it's that guitar.

I give you - the counterfeit Epiphone Zakk Wylde Model Les Paul. It fits the description, but it sure wasn't made by Epiphone. Probably one of the most counterfeited guitars of all time for some reason:

here is a very legit looking Epiphone headstock complete with legit serial #. Luckily in this case, there is a glaring "tell". Epiphone NEVER had letters bigger than the numbers in their serial number as you see below. This is fake. But if they had gotten the lettering right, I doubt you could tell just by looking.

Good point! Never thought about someone putting a legitimate serial number on a fake...but I see what you mean.

yeah it's pretty messed up. You do honest work to make honest money and these guys are happy to steal it right out of your pocket. They probably steal kids bicycles too. :evil:

CC110814004 does not show as a valid serial number in the registration page. Doesn't mean it's a bogus number though.
Contact customer support.
