Ibanez DiMARZIO IBZ USA C1

Hi seen this on a very popular auction site and I am unable to find any info. Looks like a JS model to me. The seller says its USA made (but with F serial number, which seems to be a contradiction). He says it is a 2000 model, but I can find absolutely no info in catalogues etc. The markings on the fret board say Custom made. Grateful if anyone can tell me if this is genuine or shed any light !

Yes this is a 540r, as for the date since it has the custom made inlay I would say that it was made in 91 or 92. The seller doesn't know what he's selling (or he's deliberately lying).

1st things 1st. What is the 2nd number after the F on the neck, that tells us the yr.

Ibanez guitar wiki states the "custom" inlay on the 21st fret, was offered from 90-92.
Hers a link to it:

OP either bought it or has missed out. It ended at a very reasonable price.
