1991 RBM1

New here and good to be here!
Here's a question for the Rb heads out there. I recently acquired a 1991 RBM1 practically new and a very beautiful guitar. It is black with gold hardware including pick guard with the sb1, hb2 pickup configuration etc which is typical of the 1992 versions.
My understanding was that these features were of the '92 model not '91 even though the serial pans out to be the latter. Could this be a late model 91?
Any input is appreciated. Pictures can be uploaded upon request.
Thanks

Going by the catalogs it's a 1992 model I think. What may have happened is that the neck could have been made late '91 but used for a 1992 spec guitar. See Ibanez Rules catalogs for more info.

Thanks.
Checking the catalog suggests it is indeed a 1992. The serial is that of a '91 however, F154***. Any other ideas?

Re: 1991 RBM1

What's probably happened is that Ibanez will have made a pile of those necks in 1991. A neck made in 1991 will be stamped as F1XXXXX. If they have a stockpile of those necks they just use them on 1992 guitars. The whole guitar could have been made late 1991 with the 1992 spec and released in 1992 as the new model but as it was made in 1991 it'll have the F1 serial number.
