What JS Modell?

I have a black Ibanez JS from the beginning of the 90's but I don't know what model it is.
I think it's a JS 100, but what details should I look for to know what modell it is? Is there any way of searching the number on the back of it? (J 000381)

What JS Modell?

Clues are the location of fabrication (korean vs Japan), type of tremolo (Edge vs Lo Trs, see tech section for pictures). Basically, if it's got an Edge trem, it's a Japanese axe. Probably a JS-1 (which is pretty much the same as a 1000). I'm not sure, but I think the JS-100 came around in 1995.
Also, the high-end JS guitars have Dimarzio pickups.
Hope this helps.

The J plate's a dead giveaway, 90' JS1BK.
