Sounds like that serial would make it a 1993 model, however, I don't believe the USA Custom was available in '93, unless it was a last '92 model that got an '03 serial.

It's a '90.

6-digit-# : 87-96(??); the first number gives you the year. the '3' is just a coincidence. for example, F7xxxxx is a '87, F0xxxxx is a '90, F3xxxxx is a '93.

7-digit-# : 97-present. First two numbers tell the year. for example, F98 xxxxx is a '98, F00 xxxxx is a 2000.. and F03 xxxxx would be a real '03.

I'd love to see some pics! ;)

That was going to be my guess as well.
