help me identify this LACS!!!

hello everyone. so ive had sort of a fascination with this guitar ever since seeing it. i posted a thread on it not too long ago here, and the general consensus was that it was an LACS custom guitar.

i know mike lerner(the guitarist) is endorsed by Ibanez, but these pictures were taken from 2008. i'm not sure if he was endorsed then, but thats pretty long ago to already have a sick custom model.

it may very well be an LACS, but i thought he might have just taken a production guitar(or i guess could have had the custom shop paint a production guitar) and done the work on his own. heres some pics of it, the green and yellow one a few pictures down:

i was hoping someone could help enlighten me to if ibanez has any 1 volume knobs cream binding reverse headstock guitars.

Re: help me identify this LACS!!!

Really hard to tell without knowing the serial #. If he was high enough on the endorsee food chain to warrant a custom made how he wanted, then it would be LACS. Usually you have to be, I think, at least B level to get custom finishes and all that. Don't hold me to that, tho.

My RS-1 Ralph Santolla is a LACS. Love it madly.

What I can tell from the pictures is that the neck is certainly a custom made one.
I don't believe Ibanez produced a square heel, no inlay, ebony board, binding, reverse headstock with no string tree on a Lo Pro Edge nut. Everything about this neck is non-standard.

I dont think its a LACS I remember seeing the guitar as a custom made guitar but not by LACS. Maybe ET? I dont fully remember.
