    IB says it is build in Indonesia in the year 2015. A 2016 guitar's serial begins with IC.

    OK thanks! So I guess they started using a 2 letter system at some point in time?

    For the Indonesian built guitars, yes.

    I for Indonesia, then alphabetical letter for year.

    Korean SE guitars just start with the single letter for year.

    Does anyone know if theirs a hardshell case that fits this guitar? I am not sure if it would fit in a standard SE case?

    I have a wonderful black SE Santana and, no, unfortunately it wouldn't fit into any standard case I have. However, it finally ended up fitting into a really nice case adopted from a Taylor Solidbody that I ended up selling, keeping the case for the Santana. So that would work IF you can find one. Or try checking online for cases made for "wide-bodied" guitars.

    Great guitar, though, eh? Congratulations!
