Gbase-where every RG is a 570

I've used gbase a few times before to find interesting deals. But recently, I've noticed a trend where sellers attempt to pass off guitars that are quite obviously 470s and worse as MIJ 570s. Buyer beware, I guess.

Examples:

Not only is that not purple neon, but that's a football-shaped jack-plate and an AANJ body (no AANJ purple neons).


http://www.gbase.com/gear/ibanez-rg-570-2000-purple-1

Here's a 470 in Grape Ice (a cool color that never came on MIJ RGs) with a Lo-TRS trem, also marketed as a 570.


http://www.gbase.com/gear/ibanez-rg550-r-1999-black

Here's a beater with H-H pickups, no pickguard, and a Lo-TRS marketed as a 550.
