Looks like an s470, but that's the most I can tell about it.

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

It looks like it was completely craped together. If it says Floyd Rose II, the tremolo is not stock indeed, and IIRC Axis pickups usually wouldn't be in a Prestige guitar. I can't think of a Prestige S with that kind of finish, so even the neck and body might not belong to each other The body/pickups could be from an S470 MD. Do you have some higher quality pics?

I agree with Brambram, I think its a parts guitar, prestige neck, standard body, cheap pups, and replacement trem.

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

Check if the neck has 24 or 22 frets.

For some reason i think this guitar is far from original.
If its a 24 fret neck its from a rg series and not a s.

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

Almost definitely a mutt, note that its missing a neck bolt, the pickups aren't original, neither is the trem.

The serial number on the neck dates your guitar to 2000.

Neck has been scavenged from a much higher end S series too, since there was no prestige S series in that year (2000) that came in that finish, nor was there one that came with HSH pickups in a prestige form, the closest would be the non-prestige S470. In fact, that finish doesn't exist in the 2000 lineup at all.

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

I still think the body is from an S470 MG considering the finish. Didn't you have pics of the fingerboard? What are the inlays like? Number of frets? If it has 22 frets and only two small dots at the 12th position, it's from an S2020X

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

oh dear...that poor neck. Slapped on a mutt, it doesn't belong on. Look at the tuners, missing their bolts.

Thats because they're not the original tuners. Someone's removed the prestige ones (gotoh, thus quite high quality), and replaced them with some generic ibanez cosmo ones. They'll function just fine, and don't require a screw there because they're held on from the other side of the headstock by the nut.

Re: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS IS?

It could be missing that neck screw because the hole in the body doesn't match up with the hole in the neck. I'm not familiar with S series,but I know that a Korean RG body that hole doesn't match up with a Fujijen RG neck. From the looks of the way that guitar was put together whoever did it probably didn't care if it only has three neck screws
