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.(I went to all of these places man I have stories.) Any other serial number questions, just ask I know them all. Sincerely Stefano I don't think any JS1 were ever made in Indonesia, for some kind of twist all Satriani's serial numbers differ from the standard Ibanez , this is why I was asking. Cheers Stefano Mr Shanley, The Captain can only work on the info I recieve from Nagoya...please be gentle.else I will set my phasers and proton missles to stun...can't nuke the keeper Captain Ibanez ps for any of the faithfull out there who wish to crittersize.
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.
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.
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.
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?
