As you know, this is the "high rent" Artcore semi-hollow DC.Please enlighten me, if possible.ooops sorry to say that they use the old school Fujigen building techniques..there is a fault...destroy it and start again.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.Sung Eum Factory Example serial number E9052345 E=Sung Eum 9=1999 05= May So 01=Jan 12=Dec 2345= 2345th guitar built for that month Korean Built Ibanez Cort Factory Acoustics and Electrics start with C eg C03071234 C=Factory 03=2003 07=July 1234=1234th guitar built for that month Saehan Factory: acoustics start with SQ, electrics start with S Sae-In Factory starts with A These other factories follow the same serial number pattern as the Cort Korean factory.There was a guy selling an AF200 with H7 serial saying it was a 97, but I thought it would be 87... lmao So, as I said in a much early thread..about 2 years ago..are you freaks...coming too Australia for the 1st ever Ibanez forum ?I would love to put you all up at my place by the beach here..my invalid mum might get the shits ..time with the greetings..now your here...where's my cofee and a biscuit..on I dare ya to say I take care of a 76 year old Parrot Come on ya bastards , get ya rear into gear can we do this next year at Australis Music in 2006, the 30th anniversary of the end of the Law Suite Era?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.

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.

I am looking forward to learning more about my favorite guitars and plan to search this site indepth.

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.

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.
