Hi! I'm new here and need some help ID an Ibanez USA Custom i'm about to buy.

-The Front of the headstock says "USA Custom" on top of the ibanez logo.
-On the back of the headstock the serial 92541 and "Made in U.S.A are stamped.
-Mahogany body, maple top with some trans red finish. Matching headstock.
-Birds eye maple neck and fingerboard.
-Cosmo hardware, Edge trem, HSH pick up config. Paf pro pups. Humbuckers with mounting rings.

My thoughts on this is UCEW but the birdseye fingerboard confuses me...

We need a lot better/bigger pics of the whole guitar to help identify it. From the little I see, I'd guess a UCEW1BE TR or a UCEW1QM TR.

Pics are from current owner. Im going to look at it tomorrow. Ive seen these stamps on UCEW but the config on this guitar is one of a kind for me. He's asking around 7000 swedish crowns (about $1100) . Decent price?

$1100 is definitely fair if it's in good condition....... I'd buy it.

I still think it's a stock UCEW1BE. Maple necks were an option on all USA customs.

I agree with my stunt double. Looks great, and a decent price.
Love that neck, but could use some fret work.

It's odd - according to the serial number, it was made in 1992. But a configuration like this (birdseye top, maple fretboard, EDGE) was no longer featured in the 1992 catalog which only had the UCEWQM and FM variants with Lo-Pro EDGE.
