Question Help to identify please!

PLease help guys. I just bought this one, seller tolds me this is a RG470 MIJ but i can't find any info that supports this info since wiki says that all RG470 MIJ are basswood and not mahogany as this one is....

Do you have any idea of what model is this one?

Thanks a lot.

That body doesn't look like original. More like custom job.

AANJ looks a bit odd.

There are Mahogany 470s, take a look at the RG470MHZ but that one is made in Indonesia.

There is also the RG470MB which was mahogany body until last year when it was changed to meranti but this is MII as well, not MIJ

The AANJ does look weird and so does the headstock and all the hardware and bolts.

I'm no expert but I agree it looks more like a custom job.

Yes, i saw all those models but shark inlays are not present at the one i have that's why i'm not sure, by thw way, hte guys who refinished this guitar took away (sanding) any signs at the neck pocket and pocket as well :/
