70's Lawsuit Ibanez SG?

Hey dudes, I came across this Ibanez SG copy and I believe it's from the 70's. The Neck seems pretty legit, but I'm concerned about the serial number. The serial number is H350672. Do you think it's legit? Any help would be great, thank you!

Hi sdiefko,

I put the serial into the guitar dater and this came up;

Your guitar was made at the
Terada Plant, Japan
in 1993
Production Number: 50672

Not sure it's correct but anyway, here's the link if you haven't been there before;

I hope you got the guitar because regardless of the details that's a funky mix of styles. Love the headstock inlay! It may have been a Japanese market only model because lots of guitars in the Japanese home market were able to utilise the gibson open book headstock shape.

Cheers for now.

Hello, my dude! I believe Ibanez stops making SG models shortly after the lawsuit with Gibson but I might be mistaken! Nevertheless I got the guitar and I am waiting for it to arrive tomorrow

This is absolutely NOT a 1993 model. It's a pre-1975 due to no ser # on the headstock. it's most likely a model #2394. Look in the ibanez vintage catalogs library online. That dater is way off....lol.
