    You write your own answer, so what do you mean exactly?
     
  3. I think it was supposed to be

    I CAN HAZ SOUNDGEAR

    That's a nice color.

    Uhm, I think he's asking if anyone knows the model name and when it was made... Nice bass OP.

    No, you do not. The 300/400 series began in the '90's, and the bass in the photo is much newer than that.

    +1. In 1990 there were no models below an SR600, previous to this there were not either. The first model (IIRC) was the SR1000, in 1987, which is vastly different.
    The SR800 was out the next year, (which I have a SR885le). the end of the fretboards, like the op pic didn't start until the mid-late 90's.

    This is an SR800LE, from '88

    This is the 1000 series from '87

    My bad, the first appearance of an SR400 was the SR400JB, in 1993

    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.

    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.

    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...but 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.
