Help to identify this guitar (RG) 90's (reverse headstock)

Hi there!

I just spotted this guitar for sale in my area, and I'm wondering which model it is.

RG body, no pickguard, sharkfin inlays, reverse headstock, (shiny) grey, V7 S1 V8 pickups, ...

Here the only two pics I have at the moment.

inlays indicate either a 700 series or an rg5ex1 (?) neck...570's had dots...d.m.

That neck worries me. Looks like an RG5EX neck. They didn't have those smoke mirror inlays in the 90's.

you've got the point. the only way to make sure, is to look at the back of the neck.

I think the inlays are normal. The lighting is making them look like ghost sharkies.

It's a '98 RGR570IPT. Damn nice one too....other than the goofy TRC.

thanks all for the feedback, I think now it's clear it's a RGR570 IP

Experiencing severe GAS at the moment ... will let you know if that RG ends in my hands!
