Help identify an old RG
I have had an RG body and neck broken down in my garage for the past 10 years wasting away in a case. Currently it's just collecting dust, but I finally found a local guitar shop that can do exceptional work in a timely manner and figured I would have it painted a custom color. I have searched the web for info on dating an Ibanez guitar, and was directed to Ibanez rules. There is no serial number on the neck plate, but there is a sticker on the back of the headstock reading "F7***** made in Japan." I looked all over trying to find a 1987 RG catalog, but came up mostly empty handed. I'm thinking that my RG is an RG560, but the original color does not match the info or spec of that model. Here's the specs: H-S-S configuration - with plating around the humbucker, original edge trem, original neck joint, 24 fret shark tooth inlays with ivory binding around the outside of the neck and headstock, and the original paint scheme was a metallic silver. The body is completely sanded down, except for the neck pocket and trem cavity painted jet black. The neck joint was painted over by the previous owner, so I can not obtain the info from there. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
