second hand JS100 build date

i just bought a JS100 second hand, later on i discovered that it may have an edge III trem on it (which may account for me not being able to tune it), and i was wondering if someone would be able to figure out the build date.

serial number - C 07023953

thanks.

Re: second hand JS100 build date

It was manufactured in 2007 as per the first two numeric digits. C Means it was made in Korea at the Cort factory. Hope it helps

Re: second hand JS100 build date

Hi... I found a JS100 used in a market. But there's a disappointing point that it's serial number is C429677 and olso JS100 Made in Korea it says... I couldn't confirm this serial number at Guitarproject. Does anybody have an idea for this problem?

Serial numbers like that (without a preceeding zero) mean that they're from the '90s. So that's a 1994 guitar (one of mine starts C62xxx and is a '96 model).

Thanks.

I know that the "first" zero can't be because of the year maybe. I'm unsure about the "second" one. And also, the guitar doesn't seems as it is 15 years old

Thanks anyway
