Jackson JS, X and Pro Series guitars that were made from 2013 until present day feature a 10-digit alphanumeric serial number located on the back of the headstock or neckplate. The first two number digits in the serial number identify the year the guitar was created. For example, a guitar with the serial number ICJ1500001 was made in 2015. USA and Custom Shop guitars are typically stamped at the end of the fingerboard for neck-through/set-neck models and are on the neck plate for bolt-on models. However, the serial number on the USA and Custom Shop guitars do not usually indicate the year the guitar was made. 

More detailed information can be found in the dating articles in this section or you can Call Jackson Consumer Relations for more information on the year your USA or Custom Shop guitar was made.

Please be aware that detailed dating information on many of our import models and instruments prior to 2002 may not be available.
