any info on a 1995 rgr470dw

I won an auction so I don't have it yet (Tuesday). I saw a weird rg and won it. It has a reverse headstock, rosewood shark tooth bound fretboard. The body has a strange paint job. It's black but with dark red around the edges and headstock is the same color. From a lot of internet research it appears to be a 1995 rgr470 in deep wine. Has an "F" serial number. I know it has an Edge bridge. Is the neck a wizard or wizard II? Anyone have one of these resoncast body guitars?

Probably Japanese Wizard II. I think they were a Japan only model. Fairly rare.

Didn't think it was a bad deal for 2 Ben Franklins. I've never seen one before and I like the Ibanez oddities. I'll know more when I get it and take the neck off to find any indentification. I think it is a wizard neck and the painted reverse headstock is also cool.

It's Wizard II. I suggest you change the pickup to EMG, because the body is resoncast.
I tried both duncan and dimarzio with resoncast body, it just too bright.

According to the catalogs I accessed through the Ibanez Japan website it shows up in the 1996 and 1997 catalogs and states Wizard neck on the specs. Mine has an F5 serial #.
