A question about the VDY

I've seen the discussion about the volume-knob being positioned wrong, and moved in 89/90, so that guitars from after 1990 have the volume-knob in the new position..

Now, I've also seen some VDYs with the volume-knob in the old position, which should not have occured, because the first year of production for the VDY was 1991, right?

(I see now that the first year of production was 1988, so it makes perfect sense..)

My question is; how did (some) VDYs get this volume-knob-position, when in fact that should not be possible?

I found these pictures on the web (one on the bay)

Old position:

Re: A question about the VDY

From what I've heard back then Ibanez had a habit of grabbing whatever parts they had on hand to make up a guitar. Chances are that either the owners changed the pickguards or the factory used old ones on hand...

VDY went into production in 1989.
