This form of serial numbering is still used today on guitars where the number is impressed into the back of the headstock.

Prior to 11/2011 there are 5 digits followed by a letter.

The letter denotes year, starting in 2010 with A, with a 5 digit production number. Alphabet Production Month (A = January to L = December), Next two numbers are Production Year (09-2009. 5 is UV77REMC [2 is FRM1, etc], Next Two numbers is monthly series number.

On typical Ibanez serial numbers the first 2 digits will indicate year, or the first digit will indicate the last digit of the year, but there are also some that indicate no year at all.

Because allot of it can be confusing I'll spell out as many model/serial types as I can remember tonight in a fully inconcise and dribble filled rant.

160225 was a very odd plate number I came across on a Jem.

Most that I'm aware of are what I call 250k plates [25****] and current 2003' FP15th's have 260K plates [26****] meaning there have been over 10,000 Jem's made since they deviated from the serial plate numbering.

Where things go astray is when the Jem line went to AANJ in 93'.

This is where you start seeing consecutive numbered plates on the remaining regular joint models that no longer indicate year.

Here is the breakdown courtesy of Ibanez Collectors World.
