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.
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.

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.
I hope this is useful to all our new fellow Ibaneezer's who have joined the collective as of late. Also, what kind of guitars were made there and what years?
