Dating a hohner acoustic guitar millionairedatingservice org

An Ibanez serial number can tell you two things, year of manufacture and factory [or country] of manufacture.There is no master list to correlate to a model number, these are consecutive serialized numbers only.

;) This page is for dating Ibanez guitars built in Japan only.

See the Factories heading a few paragraphs down for little info on guitars produced elsewhere.

Ibanez did not put serial numbers on their guitars. The only way to date these guitars is to find out what years they were available and then comparing all the minute details like scripts, contours, and inlay variances that only the hardcore vintage gurus know.

These guitars can be dated by their electronics if they are original.

On typical Ibanez serial numbers the first 2 digits will indicate year, or the first digit will indicate the last digit of the year, but there are also some that indicate no year at all.

Because allot of it can be confusing I'll spell out as many model/serial types as I can remember tonight in a fully inconcise and dribble filled rant.If you're trying to figure out what model something is from the serial number, figure out what year it is then go to the catalog library for the corresponding year [or year before or after] to find the model.Some models will never be found in the catalogs, that's just the way it is.We may be one of the largest in Europe but we are still small enough to be individual and we think that matters.We have no production lines and no robots, but we do have workshops.Our workshops employ many highly skilled craftsmen who hand build many of our product lines.
