Hi Ben, I have an AS200 model J815327 yes that’s Jan 1981.
I live in Boambee East Coffs Harbour NSW. I’m in the yellow book
Ray Magri…..Indeed the ‘J’ in your serial number indicates the month it was made. Not January as you suggest but in fact October 1981. January would have been ‘A’. Ben’s guitar is a I (eye) so that would be September. For more info on Ibanez serial numbers please check with the Ibanez Collectors World Forum. Lots of knowledge and info there on both your guitars. 🙂
