Just bought a new Ibanez Model SA130MFBBT Serial number is 4L014L150401176

Does this look to be a legit serial number? Can't find any info on it.

Think

We've actually used a ton of different serial numbers on our guitars over the years. We change it up from time to time so it never follows the exact same format.

Yours indeed looks legitimate. The "4L014L" part in the beginning is a little more of a prefix to the serial number. On the back of the headstock, you'll probably see a similar number on the back of the headstock that starts with "4L" and ends with the "150401176". this designates the factory and the time of build. "1504" actually shows April 2015 build month.

Hope this helps!
