DATING IBANEZ GUITARS

Hi Jemsite fellas!

(I'm not sure if such thread already exists and where it should be placed - hope mods will help with that)

I've just found this document that will help you exactly date your Ibanez whether it's japanese, korean or indonesian. Though it is in german it's not hard to understand the logic of reading serials - I tried to find such page in english, but... Anyway, if the english version doesn't exist I'll be glad to help you with translation.
Cheers!

here it is:

Re: DATING IBANEZ GUITARS

You could translate how they fit a 12 for December into a 6 digit serial number

7-stellig - 1987 bis 1996
F232104 = Japan; 1992; März; 2104. Instrument
1. Stelle ein Buchstabe: Fabrik-Kennung (meist F)
2. Stelle = Baujahr (z.B. 4=1994)
3. Stelle = Monat (1 = Jan; 2 = Feb; ...; 12 = Dez)
letzte 4 Stellen = Produktionsnummer
