Help Identifying this Japanese RG model, Please!!!!!

Hi there, I recently acquired this guitar on the cheap side and the previous owner claims it is a 1993 Japanese made RG570

some other people have told me it might be an RG370 or even an RG470

here is what I know:

-Serial # is F309462 (confirms that was made in 1993 at the Fujigen plant)

-Neck and bridge pickups have been replaced so Seymor Duncans...the middle one should be original

-the tremolo appears to be an Edge one

Any help will be highly appreciated, and can take more and different pictures on request, for sure

Thanks guys!!!!

If it has an edge, it's probably a 470. 570's of the same period had the Lo Pro trem. Easiest way to tell is to unbolt the neck from the body.

look at the input jack.

flush mount = 5XX
with plate = 4xx
