Lt Commander Roadster please fill in the missing blanks here If you have anything else please put it here so we can keep a uniform thread to be used by all as good reference guide.
I have an AS193, built 2003 according to your charts, and from what I have read here, the Artcore bodies were built in China, then shipped to Japan for necks and finish.
This is where I am confused, because my 193 has "Made In Japan" on the back of the head stock, and the sticker inside the body says "Made In Japan", also.
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.
This is the masters method..don't even begin to ask why.!
This is why you have so many classic guitars in your collection these days. Cappy Steve: Earlier in the thread Daveh said that he had an AS193 that had a Japan serial number. The pictures show that not only does the serial number indicte the Japanese ancestry, but the label inside says so, too. One time when I was shopping, I found this guitar on the Ibanez site, in the Artcore catagory. \image \image Here's one I couldn't find any reference for.
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.

Jim Hi Jim, what do you mean with the H7 part in our post? I respect the quality input...cause remember I may not be as alert as I used to be sometimes... Now you thought that you had to be kind for the thread for Ibanez ..
Does it mean that a guitar with H7 can't have the year determined prcisely? The Untold Story writers..yes thats my old mate JD ! Sorry taxdodgers..I'm out of school for all the wealth of collective knowledge out there,sometimes, give me a break, cause I'm not on the soapbox here, I do what I do for you guys...3 weeks until the Aussie release of the 2005 Ibanez range..I will get our cleaners to get Spiro's dribble off the glass at the office.
There is also another Z that was on the Silver Cadet that was Woo-sin, that place burned down and so did the S&N factory. 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.
