Rosewood? I thought they were Ebony...

I was looking on the Ibanez site, and I noticed that the JEM7WH has a ROSEWOOD fretboard.

Now, I could have SWORN they were ebony. Were they always rosewood? Am I going nuts or what? Im quite confused, somebody please straighten this out for me. The one I played at the store the other day looked and felt like ebony.

Must have been some damn good quality rosewood, the grain was very thin, black and closed like ebony.
