Re: Is this body MIJ or Korea? How to know?
Yeah, it does fit the Lo-Pro, but to me, that route doesn't look like it was exactly intended for an Edge originally. Too rounded or something.
The comment about the barrell jack is indeed accurate for most RGs. MIJ's have a seperate, small cavity routed out of the back for the jack wiring which MIK's lack. However, I'm not 100% positive that this is true of the MIJ 470s. I thought I remember that they also had the extra cavity, but I'm not sure.
In any event, if I'm correct that that's not an actual Edge route, that would seem to make it an MIK body. It is worth nothing that I had an RG320 (definitely MIK) that was willing to accept an Edge -- barely. So that doesn't automatically prove anything.
