Question EX series (MIK)

Found this one hanging in a pawn shop the other day. For a second I was upset that I hadn't found it before I bought a S520 for twice the price:

I tried digging in the EX series bits of the Ibanez Wiki, but can't seem to nail down exactly which one.
The strange thing is the back of the headstock. The serial number or model info has been replaced by a silver sticker with some guitar shop info & a pseudo serial #.

Right now I'm thinking of driving up there to look at it tomorrow & maybe even compare my S520 (sound-wise) if they let me.
Am I wasting my time?

I'm already reading they're the poor man's RG, but are they really hidden gems (no pun intended)?

I found a great MIK BTB300 once & there was hardly any info about it online, but it is a damn good bass & sounds fan-bloody-tastic!

Re: EX series

Your S series is likely going to be the better guitar, so I wouldn't stress too much.

Re: EX series

The S520 is beautiful & in pristine condition, which scares me, LOL!
I bumped it today when I was mucking around with my Wah while the guitar was still strapped on. My first thought was, "I should buy the beater instead!".

Finding out today that the EZII bridge on the S520 is so proprietary bugs me, but I guess the bridge on that EX series wouldn't be much different.
