MIJ square heel & AANJ start and end ?

This is a question on late 80's and early 90's MIJ necks...

With my search for a neck on a project I noticed an overlap of square heel and AANJ necks (speaking of year of manufacture). I can understand when the AANJ came out they still had square heel products to sell so, an overlap.

This is in reference to RG models.

Question?- What was the First year of AANJ and the last year of square heel.

In no reference to re-issue models.

The last catalog year for square heel standard model(550/770/etc) RGs is 1993, the first catalog year for AANJ standard model RGs is 1994.

OK.

I see a neck with F 5xxxxx that is square and RG. Ran number, states 1995 and again it is a square heel.

Don't think I'm seeing it wrong.

There's always been overlapping, but a 1995 model should have an AANJ. If it doesn't, it's not a 1995 model, but an earlier model with a 1995 SN#(so either an oddball, leftover parts, etc).

People take the SN# "rules" as law, but Ibanez has a habit of not following them. This forum alone has had tons of guitars posted with SN#s a year earlier than the actual model guitar it's on, or a year later.

oh that's strange...
1985 the RG wasn't born yet
1995 the RG is 2 years already with AANJ.

Could that be fake Ibanez? No offense..

Leftover parts makes sense. I was gonna pull the trigger on it but the year made me hesitate. Think I still will get it but, I need some more coffee first.
