What Year is my RG8527VV J-Custom?

I have an Ibanez RG8527VV J-Custom that I'm getting ready to sell, and I realized that I'm not 100% certain of the year.

When I bought it used, it was listed by the previous owner as "2004" and I never really questioned it. But now that I'm selling it, I want to be certain--and the serial number is not in a format that I'm familiar with. Online resources have been no help. I've checked here, on Rich's site, and on guitardaterproject.org. No dice.

I don't want to list the full serial #, but here's a partial: CE 43xxx

(the 5 numbers are actually stamped into the wood)

I'm used to the usual "F" serial numbers where the 1st two numbers after the F are the year. On this J-Custom, I've no idea.

If you think you can identify the year with just what I've provide here, please do so. If you need the rest of the serial #, just message me and I'll send you the full #.

Thanks in advance!

Looks like they were made from 2001-2004. I would guess the 2001 and 2002 would be Lo Pro trems and 2003 and 2004 would be Edge Pros. Best guess is that the serial starts with a 4, so 2004.

This one has an Edge Pro, so you may be onto something there.
