Can you identify this Ibanez? - A 4xx made in Japan

As far as I remember, there aren't RG4xx made in Japan. But my friend has this one:

http://jemsiteforum.com/sharefiles/i...age=ibanez.jpg

Can you identify it? It has a Lo-TRS tremolo, mirror pickguard and stock DiMarzio pickups (don't know which.. PAF Pros, maybe?).

Thanks!

Yeah... If it has Edge tremo on it. I had one Rg450 but it had a black pickguard and black hardware. But I think it was just bit older model. Great guitar... I miss it.

In the early year(s) of the RG4xx guitars, they were made in Japan. Then the company moved production to Korea. I recently did a setup on one that had the TRS trem on it and said made in Japan on the neck. This threw me as well, but then I went to my Jedi Master (Rich) for the answer...:biggrin:

we're now getting RG470s that are japanese in origin allegedly!!

Apparently they've switched production back to japan!!!

At this moment in time though I can't confirm this.
