Serial number question

I just took a look at the serial number on my '96 RG517 and it actually only has 7 digits, so I wonder what it means.

its number is F618600

So I've interpreted it to mean 1996, 1st month (January), 8600th guitar built that month.

Or is it just a 1996 model and the 18600th guitar built that year?

Or is something completely different?
