I have spent a fair amount of time searching for serial number explanation info but nothing I have read quite fits or perhaps all the blows to my head when I was young are catching up with me. But I have an Ibanez Concord J-500 BS with a serial number of F790100. Can or will anyone help me? I bought it new and I'm trying to date and understand the serial number.

I looked through the catalog archive, but could not find your guitar. The archives are not a complete collection; especially for the early years, but this is what I think your serial number translate to:

1975 to 1983
Example serial number C800358
C=March So A=Jan M=Dec
80 = 1980 year of build
0358= 358th guitar built for that month.

Yours F790100 would be: June 1979 the 100th built.

Yeah, I would be willing to bet 1979. This 1978 catalog shows the "floral" series guitars that seem to match your model:
