Original RG550's - which years had white labels on pickups?

Just curious what years did the older RG's have the white "IBZ" labeled pickups vs the plain black pickups? I have an '87 RG550 with plain black pickups but I'm looking at another '87 with the white labeled pickups (IBZ-V1, IBZ-S1, IBZ-V2).

I have a '87 550 with white V1, ect. markings on them. I think it is just what Ibanez had on stock at the day the guitar was assembled.
