Indonesian Made Ibanez These guitars start with the following I=Cort Indonesia factory K=KWO factory J=Sejung factory The example serial number is K031034335 K=KWO 03=2003 10=Oct.
So 01= Jan 12=Dec 34335 it is from the Acoustic range So 00001 to 49999 are Acoustic Guitars, 50000 to 99999 are electric guitars and electric basses All 3 factories use the same serial number system China Production W=World Factory Z=Yeou Chern Factory Example Serial Number WX32149 W=World Factory X=October..wait it goes like this for the build months 1=Jan 2=Feb 3=Mar 4=Apr 5=May 6=Jun 7=July 8=Aug 9=Sep X=Oct Y=Nov Z=Dec 3=2003 2149= 2149th guitar built for that month.
These are the factory codes as I got them years ago from JD: Japan F = Fuji Gen Gakki H = Terada I = Iida Korea C = Cort P = ??? since i am a little slow.This serial is off my destroyer 2 , have no idea what year or anything it was made, can someone help me ?
S = Samick Maybe we can FINALLY sort out this mess! "B814869 made in japan" is what it says on the neck plate. This looks like a great site with a good group of people.

OK here is another different one JS1-serial# J000036, when was this one made? My assumption is that this is the 36th JS1 made but the rest dosn't match any of the other examples.(I went to all of these places man I have stories.) Any other serial number questions, just ask I know them all. Sincerely Stefano I don't think any JS1 were ever made in Indonesia, for some kind of twist all Satriani's serial numbers differ from the standard Ibanez , this is why I was asking. Cheers Stefano Mr Shanley, The Captain can only work on the info I recieve from Nagoya...please be gentle.else I will set my phasers and proton missles to stun...can't nuke the keeper Captain Ibanez ps for any of the faithfull out there who wish to crittersize.H is the funniest H7 is Terrada a comapy in Nagoya Japan that makes mostly Gretsch guitars, This was a disaster and they made H7 for 3 years on the serial numbers, H must have ment for Hoshino.Acoustics with a 2 like 2940000 are Cort Taejan factory because they did not have a Letter on the stamp, I asked them to do that. It matches the description of the '88 AF200, with the narrow Artstar headstock.
