[1] the Serial Number Format for this model is myypppp where:

m = month of manufacture (e.g.: A = Jan, B = Feb, ... , K = Nov, L = Dec)
yy = last two digits of the year of manufacture (e.g.: 86 = 1986)
pppp = the sequential production number for this individual guitar out of all Ibanez electric guitars manufactured during the specified month/year at a given factory

Note: pppp is not the total number of guitars manufactured of this model.
[2] the various sources seem to contradict each other as to body composition for models having a Black finish. The 1986 Ibanez Profile April issue clearly states the models with a Black finish have bodies constructed of Basswood with a Flame Maple top, while the 1986 Ibanez Electric Guitars and Basses catalog states the models with Amber, Pearl Marine, or Wine Pearl finishes have bodies constructed of Basswood with a Flame Maple top. At this point in time we do not know how to resolve this seeming contradiction.
[3] the targeted Market values are assumptions based upon the geographic region or the language of the catalog(s) in which a given model appears. If a model appears in a Japanese language catalog, the Market is assumed to be East. If a model appears in an English language catalog, the Market is assumed to be West. Otherwise, geographic area such as North America or Asia determines the market designation of East or West.
