Dating gibson vintage guitars perfect conversation starters for online dating
The Artstar factory was the Tendura factory and I was hoping that Lt Commander Roadster was going to join the dots here..he is probably busy in the engine room fiddling with the warp drive Captain Ibanez "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. I didn't see any reference to a "P" factory prefix.I have seen several of these on Korean built models from 1987. Steve Interesting diferences between my data and what the Cap'n has presented.
If you're still having trouble accurately dating your Gibson, take pictures of the guitar, including the serial number, and upload them to the customer service section on the company's website.
Or does it work that F4 = '84 and F94 = '94. John, the 84 85 etc models etc where actually still the same system from prior to 1984, I strongly beleive that the newer serial number sytem did not take full effect until 1990 but that between you and me.
The Sung Eum story will be revealed a bit later...to do some home work , but I'm glad you find this info useful as I'm sure all at ICW will.
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.
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.
