Comments: this is a new model and is currently advertised only through the Ibanez (Japan) Facebook page. We found one online retailer who identified the DT-425 as a "spot model". This model appears to be a variant of the DT-520/DT-420.
[1] beginning in the 1990s with the release of the first DT-420 and continuing today, it has become somewhat difficult to determine exactly to which line a given Destroyer model belongs: DT Series, EX Series, new X-Series, DTX Series, DTT Series, or Destroyer series. We have seen multiple sources containing seemingly contradictory information so, throughout this site, we are making the assumption that the DT Series is the parent series for all Destroyers manufactured since 1990 and that all other notations are sub, or child, series.
[2] the Serial Number Format for this model is 4Lyymmppppp where:

ff = factory of manufacture
yy = last two digits of the year of manufacture (e.g.: 15 = 2015)
mm = month of manufacture (e.g.: 01 = Jan, 02 = Feb, ... , 11 = Nov, 12 = Dec)
ppppp = 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: ppppp is not the total number of guitars manufactured of this model.
[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.
