Hey all - I came across this Ibanez. It was made by world music in August of 2001. It looks just like the S1520FB because of the bubinga top and QM pickups. However the inlays and neck woods are different. It's also made in Korea, not Japan. The headstock also doesn't say prestige. I searched through ever catalog from 2000-2003, as well as the wiki and I couldn't find it.

Any idea what this thing could be? Is it a Korean made prestige or something different?

That's definitely an Ibanez S1520 from the early 2000s, based on the natural bubinga finish, QM pickups, LoPro trem and other features. I wasn't aware that they ever switched production from the Fujigen factory to Korea for those, but that is the era when they were moving some models over to Korean production.

It could also have had a neck swap at some point.
