Or does it work that F4 = '84 and F94 = '94. John, the 84 85 etc models etc where actually still the same system from prior to 1984, I strongly beleive that the newer serial number sytem did not take full effect until 1990 but that between you and me.
The Sung Eum story will be revealed a bit later...to do some home work , but I'm glad you find this info useful as I'm sure all at ICW will.
H is the funniest H7 is Terrada a comapy in Nagoya Japan that makes mostly Gretsch guitars, This was a disaster and they made H7 for 3 years on the serial numbers, H must have ment for Hoshino.
Acoustics with a 2 like 2940000 are Cort Taejan factory because they did not have a Letter on the stamp, I asked them to do that. It matches the description of the '88 AF200, with the narrow Artstar headstock.
cheers Stefano Hi Cap'n, long time reader, first time poster here.
The Artstar factory was the Tendura factory and I was hoping that Lt Commander Roadster was going to join the dots here..he is probably busy in the engine room fiddling with the warp drive Captain Ibanez "1984 to 1996 example serial number F232104 F=Fujigen 2=1992 as an example 3=March production So 1=Jan 12=Dec 2104 guitar built for that month 2104th made 1975 to 1983 Example serial number C800358 C=March So A=Jan M=Dec 80 = 1980 year of build 0358= 358th guitar built for that month. I didn't see any reference to a "P" factory prefix.
