NGD 1988 540S with maple neck

Picked this up about a week ago. Got it all cleaned and polished. All original '88 540S in Black Cherry and very rare maple fretboard. Original Ibanez tolex case too with the white lettered made in Canada tag on compartment. Amazingly no rust on anything and cosmo hardware looks new. Backstop was still there too. No neck pocket cracks or nut cracks either. Can't find any pics of these with a maple neck either. Seen a few radius with ultra necks but not a 540S. This looks to be a transition guitar since it has the IBZUSA pickups but the 5 way switch instead of the 3 toggles. Does the KIT stamp in the neck pocket indicated a custom build?
