Is my new guitar a J-Custom?

Black Guitar, 22 frets shark inlays, all ibanez hardware and DiMarzio pink pickups H/S/H.. S Type Body, Lo-Pro, Old Heel Joint.

just says "Ibanez" on the top and made in japan on the neck plate..
and "Custom Made" on the 21st fret.

fantastic sounding/playing instrument really as good as my jem.. love it.
just no idea what it is..

No. all J-Cs have the AANJ.

Check the back catalogs for S guitars. Alot of them had that idiotic "Custom Made" inlay ... glen

I think they put it on there because Nostradamus predicted the coming of eBay, and they thought it would be a good way to keep resale prices up. Everybody gets to put "OMG IBANES S GUITAR CUSTEM MADE!!!!!!!111 BEATS PRS FNEDER GIBSON JAKSON!!! CUSTOM!!!111one11" in their auction title.
