  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I recently bought a used Ibanez V300L, I was wondering if someone could help me figure out how to read the serial number/code: 81120595 T On other forums I found out that 81 stands for built in 81, but I couldn't quite figure out what the T at the end or the rest of it means though. Thankful for...

    Hello - first post, and first time I bought an Ibanez! Picked up a used JIVA10, condition is excellent not a scratch. Plays extremely well and I am very happy...but I'd like to find out what year it was built (i realize they are relatively new). Is there a good serial number lookup, I could...

    Hi guys, I bought a JEM77V BK here in 2014. It's only recently that's I've been looking up its serial number. Nothing fancy at first: Made in '07 July in Japan (F0725282). Cool. But on the Team J-Craft official price/identification tag that I got with, there is this "00-01" in big bold letter...

    Hello dear JEM community, it happened this way that some years ago I purchased a used Ibanez JEM7V-wh, then I kinda lost contact with the guitar and music in general and now I am back on it! I have the following problem and I would appreciate if someone could help me out; my JEM has a slightly...

    Hi guys! I have a old Ibanez RX20 and was thinking to do some mod on it but I found something very interesting. The serial number on headstock says the guitar was made in Indonesia, but the serial number on it is C6045027 which means that the guitar was made in Cort's Incheon or Daejeon...

    I'm about 100% sure it's a 2010, the SN burned into the headstock is I100606 but none of my research was able to find a serial number format to match it on any website purporting to know. It seems to be a pattern that the factory (And in one case month of manufacture.) is designated by a...

    I guys! Last week I got a PGM100RE with the serial number in a sticker and a used stamp. I found out that it means it comes from MIRC, but, if I take that sticker, will I see the original serial number?

    I am hoping that someone here can help me figure out something that has been bothering me. I have an 1987 Ibanez 540S that was purchased by my father in the mid 90's and then given to me and I am hung up on decoding the serial number. A700255 Now if I am reading it correctly the 7 corresponds...

    Hey guys, so I recently inherited an Ibanez Jem 555 from my step dad. He doesn't play, and doesn't really know anything about guitars. I'll admit I don't know anything about dating an Ibanez. I did some initial searching, but can't seem to find anything about my serial number. Pretty positive...

    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...

    I was recently looking at a 777VDY in person, and the usual breakup/dryout/crackling of the lacquer on the neck plate is so bad that the serial number is unreadable, even under bright light and a magnifying glass. Has anyone seen one that's this bad, and if so, is it a good or bad idea to try to...

    Anyone have an idea of how many Genesis collection guitars were made? My RG550 Violet Chameleon has a number lower than 100 on the neck plate. Maybe it is not the regular serial number, but it seems to indicate some "kind" of serial number.

    Hi all, a few questions for the wise ones... I've been offered an RG570 at a great price, but I'm a bit confused. The serial number (F9844778 ) shows it was made at Fugi-Gen in 1998, but the neck is clearly a one-piece maple. The Ibanez Wiki shows they made RG570s with 3-piece necks after 1996...

    Seller claims the guitar is a 2 year old RG7320 that he purchased from Stuttgart, Germany. Selling for a very good price and I'm interested in purchasing. However, there are a lot of things I see in the pictures sent by him that put me off on buying it. 1. Either the headstock is misshapen or...

    Hi, Someone to help me to date my JEM 77FP? I have a SN in 16xxxx with an original Edge... I don't know if it's from the 80 or the 90... Thank's

    I am looking at picking this RG550 up, but I am having a hard time figuring out the year and which trem and neck it has. 1. The serial is F3065XX - does this mean it is a June 1993 model? 2. The current owner thought the bridge might be a replacement because, "The bridge feels very flush like...

    Hi friends! Just got a JEM 77 FP offered and the serial number indicates: Your guitar was made at the Fuji-gen Plant, Japan 2004 Production Number: 16808 Well, guitar Dater Project at least knows this serial, the guitar looks perfectly original to me but I thought the FPs were...
