I understand most of the basics of using serial number to determine location
and have read ibanezrules com/catalogs/reference/dating.htm
I'm more interested in understanding the quality of the various manufacturing
locations. I know Japan pretty much only Prestige at this point so it appears Indonesia, China and Korea(?) are where most models are built. Are there other locations and what can be expected of the quality? Also, does Ibanez reveal the manufacturing locations in any way before you have the guitar in hand?
