Help ID my new Ibanez!

Hi, new to forums, new to Ibanez. Picked up this guitar for 2000 in the junk area of my local thrift store. Grabbed it mainly as I saw it had at least 1 Dimarzio and thought I’ll use them in something else.

Anyway I actually really like the fee of the guitar and it plays and sounds awesome. (Apart from missing the middle pickup...)

So I’ve been trying to figure exactly which model it is, but having difficulties because just when it matches up with one model I realize something it has something not on that model (different tremolo, or different inlays etc.

Was hoping you guys could help. It’s Korean made and built 2002, I know that much.

Attached some photos. Cheers for your help!

It's a bitsa, WMI hardtail neck bolted to RG body, I seem to remember WMI made the Destroyers back then so it's probably a Destroyer neck which doesn't match the AANJ very well. If you unbolt the neck from the body the model should be stamped in the neck pocket. You'll more than double your money if you part it out.

Thanks for the help, but I have to say I understood none of it...
I probably need layman’s terms!

Great stuff, thx again for your help bud. I assume these were not the stock humbuckers then?

No, stock pickups were terrible, you did well on those dimarzios, the guitar itself is pretty horrible but the neck is ok if its straight.
