JS1000 or not?

Id be grateful if anyone can help me out. Im selling what I believe is an Ibanez JS1000 guitar dated between 94 and 97.

Its been suggested that its a Korean JS100 and the mop neck inlay would back this up. However Ive read that JS1000s around this era had the inlay and no stripe on the neck. Also having disassembled the guitar Ive found JS1000 stamps on both body and neck. The pickups also look authentic DiMarzio though I cant see a model.

Build quality looks a bit too good to be Korean.

Thanks in advance.

If the inlay says JS Custom then it's a 1000 if it says Joe Satriani then it's a 100. Also if it is black pearl and not black then it should be a 1000.
