Help identify my Ibanez SA series

I just grabbed this about a week ago fairly cheap. It only has "SA series" on front of headstock. It has the typical thin S shape, quilted black/grey faded body w/ matching headstock, a mother of pearl inlay strip around the body edge, Dual HB pups (unmarked), standard nut (non locking), floating Ibanez bridge but no tuning knobs (holds tune with several dive bombs though, lol), front body(face) input....numbers on back of headstock: W540469 (made in korea). Really sounds good over the INF's that were in my RG4EX1 and S470DX, much more edge & bite...A real blast to play & love adding to my Ibanez collection. Really cant beat it for the price, just curious what I have. Unfortunately I cant post pics untill I get a few more posts in, lol....
Thanx for the help!

Re: Help identify my Ibanez SA series

I though the 32 was bolt-on and the 42 was neck-thru, but I'll check into it more and get back later

Re: Help identify my Ibanez SA series

I have this same exact guitar and have been searching for days to find out what model it is! I've had it probably 6-7 years and couldn't find any of my paperwork that could tell me the model. I've come across so many models that are very close, but not the same. Thanks!!
