    There's a UV7BK for sale locally, it's in player condition and everything seems original, but I've got one concern about it. The neckplate doesn't have the "Ibanez Universe" engraving, only a serial number. The serial number is K874669 which would hint it is from 1987, but it doesn't seem to...

    I am considering buying an old Ibanez PGM100. Now the tricky thing is that the owner lives a good 2 hour trip from where i live, does not know a thing about this guitar and isn't able to e-mail me any pictures of it. The one picture i have seen shows nothing unusual, but when i asked for the...

    I'm looking at an '88-ish RG550, the seller is offering it at a super cheap price. Typical wear and tear, but a previous owner got a little carried away with a sander and took off the serial # sticker off the back of the headstock and took half the Ibanez logo off the front. The body is the...

    Hey JEM-people! I recently bought myself what I was told to be an early 777DY - the seller didn't have much info on the guitar other than it was supposedly one of the first to come to denmark, where I live. Now, everything seems legit and it plays like a dream, but I have some concerns - the...

    How can you date a PRS from the serial number? How can you tell a '88 from a '98 from a '08 for example? Are there 4 digit, 5 digit serials etc?

    I just bought an RG second hand. I know its Serial number is F0233***, which means its either a 1990 or a 2002...I think. The neck says made in japan, has no volute on it. The guitar has V7 and V8 HH pickups, and the tremolo is an original edge (Took it out of the guitar while I'm setting it...
