  • Help I.D. an Ibanez please

    Just got a new old guitar - its an Ibanez that I believe was made in the USA.
    The neck plate says 7101 Case Ave. North Hollywood, Ca. 91605 USA (I'd call that a clue). Anyway the body shape is like that of the Satriani model, its black with black hardware, the neck P/u says IBZUSAF1, the middle IBZUSAC3, and the bridge someone replaced with a SD JB (unfortunately they didn't use a trembucker so it doesn't line up correctly with the Floyd Rose - which by the way does not have the whale tale and does have the rounded corners - I saw someone mention that on the trading post for what its worth). I am going to replace the bridge pup with a dimebucker. Anyway the neck says custom made inlaid on the 21st fret. Serial number is F 151530 - any help would be appreciated............ Thanks.

      The serial # that starts with an F shows that it was made in Japan. The "custom made" inlay, is more marketing than anything - a LOT of Ibanez mass production guitars were inlayed with "custom made"

      A serial # of F1xxxx would mean that it was made in 1991, afaik
      Ibanez RG 470 Hotrodded w/ OFR, SD FS/JB Jr(b)/DD, 90% of original hardware replaced
      Jim Dunlop GCB-95 Crybaby Hotrodded w/ TB, LED indicator, BC109s, will have sweep range selector and booster circuit
