there were several different builds of the DT-200 (second incarnation):

Color Code Build Timeframe
BK 1M01 Mar 2004 - Oct 2004
CA 1M01 Mar 2004 - Oct 2004
  1M02 Nov 2004 - Oct 2005
VA 1M01 Nov 2003 - Oct 2004
  1M02 Nov 2004 - Oct 2005

We're not certain what the differences are between the builds other than the finish color.
[1] beginning in the 1990s with the release of the first DT-420 and continuing today, it has become somewhat difficult to determine exactly to which line a given Destroyer model belongs: DT Series, EX Series, new X-Series, DTX Series, or DTT Series. We have seen multiple sources containing seemingly contradictory information so, throughout this site, we are making the assumption that the DT Series is the parent series for all Destroyers manufactured since 1990 and that all other notations are sub, or child, series.
[2] the Serial Number Format for this model is fyymmpppp where:

f = factory of manufacture
yy = last two digits of the year of manufacture (e.g.: 04 = 2004)
mm = month of manufacture (e.g.: 01 = Jan, 02 = Feb, ... , 11 = Nov, 12 = Dec)
pppp = the sequential production number for this individual guitar out of all Ibanez electric guitars manufactured during the specified month/year at a given factory

Note: pppp is not the total number of guitars manufactured of this model.
[3] the 2004 Ibanez Electric Guitars, Electric Basses, Amplifiers, Effects & Accessories catalog states the bridge is a "br-eg" type, however, the Hoshino Gakki online parts catalog lists the bridge as "Tune-O-Matic".
[4] the targeted Market values are assumptions based upon the geographic region or the language of the catalog(s) in which a given model appears. If a model appears in a Japanese language catalog, the Market is assumed to be East. If a model appears in an English language catalog, the Market is assumed to be West. Otherwise, geographic area such as North America or Asia determines the market designation of East or West.
