Help me identify my new used guitar

It's a red ibanez (s series?) rosewood board. Flame maple /mahogany body.
Tuners say made in japan.
Serial # is f 045040
I assume 1990?
Is this a 540 s?

Thanks for any help :-)
I guess I can't post pics yet so this is post two for now

Re: Help me identify my new used guitar

Thanks rgtfanatic! I was kinda confused after I saw the stamp on the body. It doesn't say 540s like I've seen on some pictures I found when trying to identify it. Were they assembled in the USA?
I'm gonna clean it up. Get rid of as must rust as I can.polish up the frets, maybe a bit of crowing on the first few frets. The previous owner said it has a short in the electronics. So I gotta track that down. Then try to set it up and play it. I've never played one of these!bought it without strings. Not sure if I going to sell it or not? Most likely as its not really my style. I'm a strat and lp guy for the most part. But I love all guitars when it comes down to it.
It really comes down to how well it plays for my style of music I guess. If your interested in it let me know and thanks again for the warm welcome and info :-)
