Does my 2004 Jem 7VWH have an Ebony or Rosewood fretboard?

Hi,

I've been trying to work out if my 2004 JEM 7VWH has an ebony fretboard or a rosewood one. I've had a look on IbanezRules.com and had a look through some threads on here, but I cant seem to find a definitive answer.

The serial number is: F0437860

I've had a few of my friends look at it, and they all seem to think its Ebony since its so dark looking in normal lighting, but im not so sure as I read online that Ebony boards where not used after 2003. Also under bright lighting it does seem to have a reddish tinge which suggests rosewood (See last picture).

Any thoughts?

Cheers.

Rosewood (see the wood grain)

Definitely rosewood. A very nice dark piece though!

Ebony has virtually no visible grain.
