Is This Fake?

I saw this on evil-b and have never seen one. I've been collecting RG's for a few years, and have been using them for about 19 years. I just want everyone's opinion about this, but I think it's a custom job.

No, but the (what's known as) "prototype" was different, it had sharktooth inlays on rosewood and binding. However, I have NEVER seen one like that, only red ones. DY? Weird. It's the first I've seen and I would be suspicious, but damn that's a nice looking shred guitar.

The only ones I've seen (two of them):

Well Kosaku owns that one, and there's a member of the Ibanez forum who owns the other (a lady, might I add!). So hey, it's thanks to Kosaku for the pic. But man you should see the thousands of RG pics I have on here! It's getting quite silly now.

All I know is I WANT THAT YELLOW 565! Please, someone buy it for me. I'll pay you back at like £1 per week.
