This might have been asked before, but I will take the risk. I am about to buy an Ibanez ATK 300 from Japan. The serial number starts with FC6. The complete number is shown in the picture. [/IMG] As far as I've seen, no one can tell me when it was made. I think it was partially made in a Cort factory, which means Korea and partially in the Fuji-jen plant in Japan. That would explain the FC tag. That doesn't explain the date. When did the production of ATK's moved from Korea to Japan? I think it was quite early, '94 maybe? As far as I've seen (I've done quite some research) this tag only comes with ATK's. Except for one guitar, a RX SN stick, also with a sticker on the headstock with Made in Japan on it. Some serials I've found. I've got some more, but dont have the exact numbers. They are from a couple of friends of mine. Thank you.
