Finding model number from serial number or??

Hey all, i have a chance to get a Prestige which looks like a (according to the owner online) that it is an RG1527 RB from about a year ago (therefore i'll guess that its a 2010). Now to actually find out the exact model of it........what is the best way? Can it be figured out if I got the serial from him??

Thanks all!

btw: I am a proud owner of an original RG565 from 1990.

You cannot determine model number from serial number. Post pics, and we'll help figure out what it is. You can also look through the catalogs.

The first 2 digits of the serial should give you the year it was made. Then you just look through the catalog to see what it is.

How to date just about any Ibanez:
