VM1 Question

Hi all. I'm new to the forum and have a question about one of my guitars. I have one of the old/rare Ibanez VM-1's (as pictured below).

My question is about the volume and tone knobs. I am not the original owner and when i bought the guitar it has these knobs on it. Looking at the old Ibanez catalog (and the one Vinnie played back in the day) it looks like the guitar should have strat-style knobs. Over the years I've seen a few of these guitars pop up here and there on ebay, etc...and I have seen some that have knobs similar to mine, and i've also seen some that have the strat-style knobs. I'm wondering what the orginal knobs are supposed to be. I actually prefer the strat-style knobs and considered changing them, but on a rare guitar like this i'd like to keep it as original as possible, and if what i have on there is original then I will probably leave it alone. Any thoughts?

Second question -- the guitar has push/pull pots and i'm not sure if that's original either. Anyway, aside from these two things in question the guitar is in really nice condition. It was barely played...just one or two very minor imperfections and of course has yellowed with age.



Thanks,
Paul
