1987 Japan

"F" is Fujigen plant in Japan, and the "7" is 1987. From 1987 to 1996 they used 6 numerical digits they in 1997 they added a digit and started using 2 numbers for the year.

All that being said: http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/...nce/dating.htm

They didn't document the serial numbers as such that you could tell what guitar you have by the number.

However, if you post up a pic or 2 or give us a description, someone here can probably tell you what you have.
