Ibanez USA Custom Shop History & Guitar Specs
Jimi, those were my biggest questions too. I thought all S and R series guitars were made in Japan. How do we tell the difference between a USA made S and a Japanese made S? Just the ones who's serial numbers DON'T begin with an F? The USA neckplate? I thought they just shipped a bunch of them over to Japan?
So the 7XX's had the pickups installed in the US, but were mostly made in Japan? I have a 91 760, how much of it was made in the US? It has a Hollywood neckplate, and bar in the middle of it (the plate) that looks like a serial number should be stamped there, but the number is on the headstock (F1XXXXXX).
