Dating a SV5470f

Hi! I'm new to the forum. It's nice to be here.

I have a question about my SV5470F. The serial number is F0735777. I'm a bit confused by this since what I have read about these serial numbers is that the 2nd and 3rd digit shows the year it was built. As far as I know this model was introduced in 2008. Does this means that this is an early model?

When I first saw your post 'Dating a SV5470F' I thought 'finally someone has lost the plot and taken Ibanez love to the next level'....then....the penny dropped.....

Haha, yeah I understand now that maybe it is was a misleading title.

I asked the same question directly to Ibanez and I just got an answer:

"That is the correct formula in this case.

With that being said, there are often "pre-production" models that are made prior to them actually launching so there is available stock when the product is announced.

In this case, I believe this is what you're running into."

So I guess it's as easy as that!

Sounds like the same thing as one of my RG's - 2009 model year but manufactured in 2008; it just means that the guitar was manufactured so that it'd be in the shops in time for its model year. Doesn't mean its a prototype or anything
