Ibanez guitar production is outsourced to several companies and facilities through the world and the numbering schemes are different in each region and/or factory.
The information on this page is culled from several sources both on-line and off-line and represents a distillation of the available information.
The false information this website generates has been propogated in numerous advertisements of sellers of vintage Ibanez guitars.
There is no proof whatsoever of any solid body Ibanez guitar produced by Terada.
It applies primarily to electric guitars, but some information may also be applicable to acoustics.
Serial numbers on Ibanez guitars can generally be found in one of several locations: The first step in deciphering the serial number is determining the country or facility in which the guitar was produced.
One can perhaps make a reasonable guess as to whether a model with an F7 serial number was actually produced in 1987 or 1988 based on the production sequence (the last five digits of the serial number).
Very few (if any) serial numbers starting with "F8" have ever been spotted.
On the contrary: the fact that the production of solid body Ibanez Artist guitars shifted to Iida Gakki 1987, while hollow-body and semi-hollow Artist guitars became Artstar labels with H serial numbers, shows that the original production before 1987 came all from the Fuji Gen Gakki factory, which was experiencing capacity problems during that time period caused by their commitment to produce guitars for Fender Japan.
If Terada had produced AR models already, they would have continued doing so.
of Japan also made some guitars for Ibanez during this period.' It's thought that 'these would be mostly hollow-body guitars, but may also included some solid-body Artist series models.' There is no proof whatsoever for either of these assumptions.
It's most likely that this is a big misunderstanding caused by an over generalization in the database of the "Guitar Dater Project" website, which is not able to assign the right factory to a vintage Ibanez guitar based on its serial number.
