I have an Ibanez CS9 Stereo Chorus pedal with the Serial No. 234625. Is there a way to date the pedal looking at the serial number?

Also, another question: I have a Boss GE-7 Equalizer pedal with no back label and no sticker in the battery compartment. Is there any way to date that?

I don't know if this should be in the Gear Building/Customizing forum...

I would ask it out to a nice dinner followed by a film, preferably a drama or romantic comedy, depending on it's taste. Don't try anything too forward, wait a couple days to call.
for the ibby pedal i don't think there is a serial number checker like Fender has but if it is made in japan then its a 70s-mid 80s made pedal after that they were made in taiwan

note my late 80s one (i bought it then) starts with a 0 and is 6 digits so i'd say one that starts with a 2 would be much more recent.
