USA Custom Serial Numbers?????

Before you say go read the threads about serials. I have. But none of them have mentioned the USA Customs, RG10,RG20, RG30, with serial Numbers starting with USA. For example USAxxxx xxxx. Can any one help me with this. Or if I missed it in the other threads point me to the right one. Thanks.

Re: USA Custom Serial Numbers?????

So it says USA and then 8 digits? Well I don't know a whole lot about it, but here's two things I've seen before that may be of use, although I don't see anything that'd fit your question.

:Sigh: I still can't post links due to my post count. I'll pm you.

Re: USA Custom Serial Numbers?????

Thanks to both Jack and Jeff for their replies and for trying to help me. I am sorry to say neither was able to help. Here is what I can tell you about the guitar. I am the original owner. I ordered it from my local dealer. Took almost 4 months to get, was supposed to take longer. when I picked it up my dealer said the Hoshino/Ibanez rep wanted to buy it. He would have paid me almost double what I had paid. He didn't realize that the mngr at my local dealer was quitting and had sold the guitar to me for dealer cost. The reason he wanted to purchase the guitar was according to him "they made less than 500 of that guitar in that particular color." How true I don't know. But I didn't sell. I kept it and have enjoyed the guitar very much. It is a USA Custom USRG30TG w/quilted top, alder body, Edge Lo-pro, and of course the PBC wizard neck. The serial # is stamped into the back of the headstock, not painted or a sticker or a plate. By the regular Ibanez serial posts it was made in june, 2006, 27th one made. But as I bought it in 96. It can't have been made in 06. If anyone can help thanks. Sorry this is so long. LOL!

I have a USRG10 hardtail in transparent blue but sadly, no serial number. Mine may be a proto as someone once surmised as there's no stamp on the headstock. I always thought I had one that had a sticker and it fell off.
