Ibanez RG565 Pickup Selector Question

Does anyone know what pickup selector originally came with the RG565? I've seen some with a 3 way switch and others with a 5 way. I'm not sure if Ibanez changed switches some time between 91 and 92 when the guitars were made...or maybe they offered both?

Re: Ibanez RG565 Pickup Selector Question

Could be possible they made a change, as I think the early stock pickups were only 2 wire, then they started making them 4 wire. So maybe they stuck a 5 way in for coil splitting? Just taking a random guess here though.
