Captain Ibanez Got an answer from Rich harris at Ibanezrules.com, he says that my JS1 is from 1990 and that the J means Japan, od but since he is the major expert on Satriani's on the planet I'll stick with his judgement and we can ad a new line to the already( confusing and)growing topic of Ibanez serial #'s.
Now I know there are a few yawning out there but think of those who do not know how to read them.P Peerless factory in Pusan Korea, Owned and controlled by IIDA Gakki in Japan they made the Nomad series and AE and other acoustics like the Charleston.I is Idda Gakki they made some AR300 models in the mid 1980's after Fuji stopped making set necks.I am looking forward to learning more about my favorite guitars and plan to search this site indepth.Serial numbers Here are the answers to your Questions F7 Means 1987 in 1997 they added F 97 and the CE designation. So S was samick in 1990 to 1995, S is now Sejan, Y is actually yoojin Korean Factory this was made in Korea (RG140, RG240, RG340) They also made the first Korean acoustic's.These are the factory codes as I got them years ago from JD: Japan F = Fuji Gen Gakki H = Terada I = Iida Korea C = Cort P = ??? since i am a little slow.This serial is off my destroyer 2 , have no idea what year or anything it was made, can someone help me ?
S = Samick Maybe we can FINALLY sort out this mess! "B814869 made in japan" is what it says on the neck plate. This looks like a great site with a good group of people.
So there it is peeps, this brings you up to date,if there is other stuff I have left out which I'm sure I might have like the Artstar Jazz Boxes with the H starting serial number...
Lt Commander Roadster please fill in the missing blanks here If you have anything else please put it here so we can keep a uniform thread to be used by all as good reference guide.
I have an AS193, built 2003 according to your charts, and from what I have read here, the Artcore bodies were built in China, then shipped to Japan for necks and finish.
This is where I am confused, because my 193 has "Made In Japan" on the back of the head stock, and the sticker inside the body says "Made In Japan", also.
There was a guy selling an AF200 with H7 serial saying it was a 97, but I thought it would be 87... lmao So, as I said in a much early thread..about 2 years ago..are you freaks...coming too Australia for the 1st ever Ibanez forum ?
