The questions wasn’t when it was made. He wants to know whatit is. I’m assuming you have the guitar taken apart, right? If not, disassemble it. The model, if it’s a regular commercial model, will be stamped on the back side of the base of the neck. : I’ve been searching for this info myself, all i’ve found so far is- : In dating Ibanez guitars made before 1987 .. the first letter is the month ( A is Jan., B is Feb, C is March..etc) the next two numbers are the year .. the next four numbers are the production number that month (they only produced 9999 pieces each month)..(example) ..C760287 = March 1976 the 287th. piece made … In dating Ibanez guitars made after 1987 .. the letter is now the factory designation .. the first number is the year built … the next five numbers are the production number of the piece for the year ..(example) .. F700015 = the 15th. guitar made in 1987 ..
