Re: RX20 Series - Wrong Serial Number?

If it is an RX20, and not a GRX20 I would think it would be Korean. Ibanez weren't having guitars built in Indonesia back then.

If you take the neck off and have a look in the pocket you should be able to see if the guitar is solid wood or plywood. You'd see the tell-tail strips of ply.

Was the serial number you gave (C6045027) found on the back plate at the neck joint? Or where?

"Serial Number: C6045027 (8 characters)
Built: april 1996. serial: 5027

(factory: Cort Guitars, Incheon or Daejeon, Korea)"


Have you guys seen something like this? Anyone has a good explanation for that?
The guitar was actually made in Indonesia or Ibanez has mistaken?

Other thing I didn't figure it out is about the wood of the body. On Ibanez's website say that 1996 guitars of this model was made of Hardwood. Is it plywood or some other type?

Thanks in advance!
I also need to know if its plywood or something else. Help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
