    I have an SR 800 bass from 1995. It has a stamp on the base of the neck saying "Made in Korea". From what i have read the SR 800 was made in Japan? Is there anybody that can help me figure this mystery out?

    But as for present Soundgears they started out in Japan, then
    moved entry levels to South Korea (not talkin about IbanezGio here just lower range Ibanez) then moved again to Indonesia.

    If you're model's from '95, chances are it's from Korea, while early '90s where still MIJ.
    My '98 SR405 was MIK, latest SR500/700/1200 I owned, were Made in Indonesia

    Cheers,
