I need help with a guitar I recently acquired. I have an idea but I want to be sure because the information on the web is not very exact. The guitar is an Ibanez RX40, made in korea in 1994, its serial number is C4020616 and here are some pics so you can see it, please delete the spaces

The guitar was made at the Cort plant in February 1994. It has 22 frets one piece maple neck very well finished, but now I suspect it's body is made of plywood. The guitar doesn't sounds bad at all, in fact, I really like it, biu I need to be sure about that.
I looked at the Ibanez rules catalogs from 1991 to 1995 and the model does not appear, they say about the RX series that are all made of solid wood because of quality and stuff, but until 1994, in 1995 catalog the RX 20 model appears in Plywood. I looked into the guitar's holes and there are horizontal marks, but I still doubt about if it's plywood or just routing marks. Also, the guitar sounds excelent with my Seymour duncan JB.
I already posted this in other section, so if it's wrong let me know to delete one.
Weel, I hope someone knows, and my best to all, thanks!
EDIT: I forgot to say that the guitar body feels very light!
