HELP!! is this ibanez s5470k KB fake?

the ebay id is 310655236896

According to the ebay discription it's limited edition and after some looking up I can't find it sold anywhere but germany. The only other place I can find this guitar is on the ibanez wiki but it doesn't say anything about limited edition and the fretboard inlays look completely different.

Is this guitar fake or not?

It's legit. You can probably only find it for sale in Germany so far because it's a Meinl anniversary model and that's where they are based. There will be others popping up outside Germany probably if you know where to look. Nice guitar, only 60 made it appears.

What is a meinl anniversary model? and why is this different to the one on the ibanez wiki? is this a "special" s5470k KB? is it even made in japan?

There are many Ibanez guitars out there that were made in short runs like this one for whatever reason. A shop can contract to have whatever they want (to an extent) made up if they purchase enough of them.

I do not know. Most custom orders have been made in Japan but the Premium fret edge wording scared me off from saying they were. Hopefully someone can verify.
