a 1993 RG 370 with an EDGE ????

i bought the guitar from someone for 70$,and i thought it was a 470...
when i took apart the neck,the body and the neck was stamped 370 & F.
and it came with an EDGE...WTF?

its possible that the factory used a 370 neck on a 470 or that someone replaced the neck. i think ibanez did use other model necks sometimes.

It doesn't mean it came from the factory that way. Folks have been known to customize on occassion...

i took some pictures

the first digit on the body stamp is a bit faded,but i belive its a 3 rather then a 5
the body doesnt look like its 570 body,and i dont think its solid basswood(by looking at the chiped neck pocket).

i think it is the resoncast body. Mine is a 1994 RG370 with resoncast body, TRS trem(no edge here). Anyway, could you identify the pickups......mine is the V6f and RTS pickups.

These do exist. Petie here, (iheartguitarblog.com) has one as well, they exist, and are quite good guitars, especially if you only paid $70 for it.
