The older acoustics were made by a Japanese company Called Kato they made the V300 series and a few other ones. The '98 catalog doesn't list the AF200 at all, and those Artstars all had the wide, tulip style headstock. Can you talk more about why the Terrada factory was a disaster?
They use the year then month like 8204 (April 1982) W is world this is actually a Korean not Chinsese Company. Was it stupid administrative/business problems or was the quality of the guitars affected?
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.
So 01= Jan 12=Dec 34335 it is from the Acoustic range So 00001 to 49999 are Acoustic Guitars, 50000 to 99999 are electric guitars and electric basses All 3 factories use the same serial number system China Production W=World Factory Z=Yeou Chern Factory Example Serial Number WX32149 W=World Factory X=October..wait it goes like this for the build months 1=Jan 2=Feb 3=Mar 4=Apr 5=May 6=Jun 7=July 8=Aug 9=Sep X=Oct Y=Nov Z=Dec 3=2003 2149= 2149th guitar built for that month.
I is Idda Gakki they made some AR300 models in the mid 1980's after Fuji stopped making set necks.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.I hope this list will be a useful one to all at ICW.OK it goes like this..starting with Japanese built guitars: 1997 to Now F=Fujigen factory, 2nd & 3rd digit=year made(eg 04=2004) next 5 digits =month & build number Jan=5000 Feb=10000 Mar=15000 Apr=20000 May=25000 June=30000 July=35000 Aug=40000 Sept=45000 Oct=50000 Nov=55000 Dec=60000 So an example here is for a recent model with a Serial number F0330210 = Fujigen 2003 June 210th guitar built.
