All Randy Rhoads neck-thru's were given "RR****" serial numbers from
1983 to the spring of 1990. After that point, only custom Rhoads
guitars were given "RR****" serial numbers; any production Rhoads
guitars were considered "USA" models and given "U0****" serial numbers.
Any neck-thru body guitar that was not a Randy Rhoads model was given a
"Jnnnn" number. This included Soloists, King V's, Kelly's, Concert
Basses etc. After the spring of 1990, only custom neck-thru's were
given "J" numbers; any production Soloists, Kelly's, King V's etc. were
also considered "USA" models and given "U0****" numbers. There are
exceptions to this rule. Sometimes you will find production neck-thru's
from the 90's with "J" or "RR" numbers instead of "U" numbers; this
usually means it was a prototype of some kind made in the custom shop.
There are a scattering of Rhoads guitars out there with "J" serial
numbers instead of the traditional "RR" number (oops!).

1: There were approximately 750 Bolt-on Charvels made from 1979-1981
without serial numbers. The first serial number used was a Strat-style
guitar with the Heineken beer bottle label painted on it, November 9th,
1981. These neck plates say "Charvel PO Box 245, San Dimas, Ca, 91773".
The last Early Charvel was#5491, built in January of 1986. Neck plates
with numbers 5492 and up were supposedly destroyed but some of them do
turn up from time to time. . . BUYER BEWARE!! These are not real
NOTE 2: From 1987 to 1989 Jackson Custom Shop bolt
on neck guitars were not assembled in strict serial number order.
Serial numbers 5234 to 5999 do not exist (due to an error in the
stamping machine). These neck plates say "Jackson, 4452 Airport Drive.
Ontario, CA 91761". They are still in use today.
Since the Jackson Junior (JJ) is the only Jackson bolt on without a
neck plate, these serial numbers can be found stamped into the
Other Note: Charvel bolt ons were discontinued
and replaced with Jackson bolt ons in 1986. This coincided with the
introduction of the Japanese Charvels. In the spring of 1990, the four
digit Jackson neck plate was reserved for custom instruments only. All
production bolt on instruments were given the six-digit USA series neck
y otras cosas en el mismo post...
Please note that the chart above only refers to USA models. Those
serials have nothing to do with the models that are being made
* USA models have four digit serials (preceded by one or two letters),
like the chart says. USA Neck-through models have the serial stamped
into the fretboard, while most USA bolt-ons have it etched into the
Jackson guitars with longer serials were either made in Japan, India or Korea:
* All _neck through_ Jackson imports were made in Japan, and have a six
digit serial stamped into the fretboard behind the last fret. Some
claim that the first digit indicates what year it was made (2 for 92,
etc), but that information is quite unreliable.
Japanese bolt-on model Jacksons have 7 digit serial numbers, starting
with 9. The serial is stamped into the neck plate, unless it's a
plate-less model (Kelly) - in which case the serial is on a sticker on
the back of the headstock. There is no known way to determine the year
of manufacture of a bolt-on import Jackson, except by comparing its
features to old catalogues.
* Bolt-on Jacksons with 8 or 9
digit serials were made in either India or Korea. These serials start
with 1 or 0 and can usually be found on the neck plate. The production
in Korea was only during a limited time, and I think only the
"Performer" line was made there, before they moved it to Japan. So most
of the guitars whose serials match these criteria were probably built
* If the neck plate has an address that says "San Dimas" or "Ontario", it comes from a USA built guitar.
* If the neck plate says "Ft. Worth", it's a Japanese built guitar.
While the factory was in Japan, the office was in Ft. Worth, Texas. The
first year for these was 1986, when the Japanese factory was
established. There are no earlier import Jacksons/Charvels than that.
The more recent Jackson/Charvel imports don't have any address at all
on the neck plate.
No neck-through Jackson ever had the serial number on the headstock - nor a five digit serial.
