Early 77FP - Early 77FP

My 77FP was originally a demo model supplied to one of the Ibanez reps in London.
As far as I know, all FP77's had pink pickups throughout.... mine has a black middle pickup!
I know the history of the guitar from new and nothing was ever touched on the guitar.
The serial number is 870035, somewhat earlier apparently then recognised within this site, could this guitar really be one of the very first made, possibly fitted with an inconsistent set of pickups, pre product launch perhaps???
Any idea's...Pete

Quite probably a pre production they send to distributors to drum up interest. The plate # is typically what you'd find on a low # LNG as it is the 35th Jem plate. The company has a habit of keeping the first run of these plates to use, so it's quite possible the plate wasn't used till later. I have a 93' Donnie with plate #005 to illustrate the point. Obviously it wasn't used a whole lot later as the FP was released in 88'.
