Re: Ibanez serial number starts with HU

I'd imagine the HU is an abbreviation of the factory name, and the 11 would mean its a 2011 model.

What factory is it? Already search the serial online but couldnt find any info. Is this maybe a fake ibanez?

Nothing looks fake about it, but it is just a back headstock shot. I'd say it's real, HU would be factory although I have no idea what factory.

What nice about this serial number is that it has transparent tape to protect it. Is this a normal thing on any ibanez guitar?

Re: Ibanez serial number starts with HU

I live in Brazil and I bought an used Ibanez guitar a few days ago. The serial number starts with HU too. The previous owner didn't know exactly which model it is. From what I found out on the web, it is a GIO GRG 270 CA (Candy Apple), probably made in 2010. I am also curious to know which chinese factory the prefix HU identifies. See attached pictures.

Hey, I live in Brazil and I've got one too. See attached pictures. From what I could find on the web, mine is a GIO GRG 270 CA (Candy Apple), probably made in December 2010. What is the model of your guitar?
