info on my 1978 Artist 2617

I have an Artist SN: O786009

I believe it is the 2617, but a few things are different.
Most notably, the truss rod cover is not black with white writing, rather it is gold to match the rest of the hardware. Does anyone know of Ibanez producing an artist with a gold truss rod cover.

Other info: I bought the guitar used about 11 years ago. The previous owner had installed a Gibson PAF in the neck position, and a Schaller humbucker with a coil-split in the bridge, so I don't have the original pickups.

For the last 8 years or so, the guitar has been in my closet and the pickups/wiring need to be reinstalled (I was going to try new pickups years ago, but never got around to it). I'm thinking of either putting in some EMGs or selling it depending on it's worth. (I usually play my Ibanez s, and would really like to try a Jem for my next guitar) However, I could easily see keeping the artist, as it has a nice beefy sound.

I've got a sense of what it's worth, but wanted to see if I have the model correct (with regards to the gold truss rod cover)
