- Cort serial numbers are denoted with a C prefix followed by either 7 or 8 digits.
I'm not sure what year the changeover occurred but using the formula it will be easy for you to tell.
In cases where generic non model specific plates are used the 4 digit number is just the consecutive number of that plate which could have made it on possibly 10 different models.
- JEM plates are 6 digit and the first 2 digits is the production year while the last 4 is the consecutive number JEM built from inception. Except for the very first batch of 90' UV plates that began 00, UV plates are also dated by the first 2 numbers.

The only way to date these guitars is to find out what years they were available and then comparing all the minute details like scripts, contours, and inlay variances that only the hardcore vintage gurus know.These guitars can be dated by their electronics if they are original.An Ibanez serial number can tell you two things, year of manufacture and factory [or country] of manufacture.There is no master list to correlate to a model number, these are consecutive serialized numbers only.
If you're trying to figure out what model something is from the serial number, figure out what year it is then go to the catalog library for the corresponding year [or year before or after] to find the model.
