On electric guitars, the serial number is generally printed on the back of the headstock. Since 1977, Gibson has used the following method: The first and fifth numbers indicate the last two digits of the year the instrument was produced, the second through fourth digits tell the day of the year it was produced and the last three digits indicate the production rank.For example, the serial number 81449243 means the guitar was the 243rd instrument made on the 144th day of 1989.1984 to 1996 example serial number F232104 F=Fujigen 2=1992 as an example 3=March production So 1=Jan 12=Dec 2104 guitar built for that month 2104th made 1975 to 1983 Example serial number C800358 C=March So A=Jan M=Dec 80 = 1980 year of build 0358= 358th guitar built for that month.

Serial numbers Here are the answers to your Questions F7 Means 1987 in 1997 they added F 97 and the CE designation. So S was samick in 1990 to 1995, S is now Sejan, Y is actually yoojin Korean Factory this was made in Korea (RG140, RG240, RG340) They also made the first Korean acoustic's.

I hope this is useful to all our new fellow Ibaneezer's who have joined the collective as of late. Also, what kind of guitars were made there and what years?

Captain Ibanez Captain: Thanks VERY much for this info. In the Japanese built, 1984 to 1996 section, how would you distinquish an '84, '85 or '86 from a '94, '95 or '96 if only the last digit of the year is used. The example number looks like there would only be valid numbers from E0 (1990) thru E9 (1999). Thanks once again for the great job you've done.

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 ?
