looks like an S520 though the neck could've been made before getting the wave inlays. Ask for serial number.

It looks very close to an S1625FB but there's a few minor differences

If not that then it could be an S1220TKS but I don't know if those came with V7/V8's

It is definitely a S520WNF. I always thought they looked better with the dot inlays. Great guitar built in a great era for Ibanez. What is that guitar going for, if you don't mind me asking?

Yep, s520. I bought one new around 2000.
Looks identical. V1 V2 pickups. dotted fretboard.
5 way toggle.
It's MY favorite guitar of 14 I own.
The things rocks. Super slim body.
Very lightweight. No sharp edges.
I'll get another if I get the chance.
Got a "deal" on mine at 600 with hardshell case.
Were going for $750 at the time.
