help ibanez s5470f st1 st2 which is it wat is going on
Hi! I bought a ibanez s5470f black haze from ebay (item number 400473774050) but when it arrived it seemed to be bikers black.
In addition, there were 2 tags and 2 different inspection tags one for the bbk guitar and 1 for a entirely different guitar, a sv5470f in blue. I'm quite convinced this is genuine but one thing worries me. If he can't get the finish right, how can he get the pickup right? I've heard there is a lot of problems with the short tracer 1 so I've been specifically looking for the short tracer 2. So I purchased this one as it said it was a short tracer 2.
So after it arrived as I said before it was bikers black and not black haze, it also was missing a tremolo arm neither of which I am concerned about because I actually prefer bikers black and tremolo arms are easy to get and I'm pretty sure it's genuine as it comes with tags and as a team j craft print on the headstock, one thing leaves me to worry.
Is it really ST2? How can I be sure? I checked the serial number which leads me to believe it was made in 2009 (the short tracer 2 was released in 2009 and I can't seem to find a specific date) So I found a possibly more specific date on the inspection card 09.3.05 which I believe is in the YY/M/DD date format. Can anyone tell me when short tracer 2's came out or maybe confirm if my guitar has a ST1 or ST2?
Sorry for any bad grammar I've barely slept and had a headache since this arrived.
