From IbanezRules:

1987 - 1996 - Guitars built in Japan between these years will have a serial number beginning with F followed by 6 numbers. F is the production factory which stands for Fugijen. The first digit will be the last digit of the year, ie. F8***** is a guitars made in Fugijen in 1988. The last 5 numbers will be the consecutive number denoting production count for the year. 25899 would be the 25899th guitar built that year.

Makes yours a '95. The 16168th. I think.

Probalby a 1995. They switched in 1997 to 2 digits of the year, so as not to overlap 1987.
