I'm quite sure when I comes to the Korean made guitars from Ibanez, i.e. from Cort. But I think you are right that the two first numbers after the letter give the year.

Re: dating a JS100

From Rich's site:

"Cort serial numbers are denoted with a C prefix followed by either 7 or 8 digits. I'm not sure what year the changeover occurred but using the formula it will be easy for you to tell. A 7 digit number example - C5030567 - translates, 5 = 1995, 03 = 3rd month [March], 0567 = 567th guitar built in March 1995. An 8 digit number example - C03114373 - translates, 03 = 2003, 11 = 11th month [November], 4373 = 4373rd guitar built in November 2003."

they tend to be a bit classless though, leave their G string hanging out for all to see!
