I inherited an Ibanez acoustic from my father. The model is A300BS and the serial number is 800906.
Would I be right in assuming that this was a 1980 build?

Hello Kiwibryn,

That is correct 1980 September. I looked through the catalog archives, but could not find an exact match to your guitar. The archives are not a complete, but are a good starting point.

I did find from the 1980s that has two guitars that if you took the neck from the F300 and put it on the body of the V300BS it would be your guitar. It is probably that your guitar was only available in Europe and Australia; or in your case New Zealand and either was never in a catalog or the catalog has never been uploaded to the archive.

Either way you have a nice looking guitar and I bet it sounds great. Here is a link to the catalog page:

Hope that helps.
