Help Identifying RG

Hi everyone,

I'm still very new to the Ibanez line, but a while ago I bought an old RG550 that I absolutely love and recently also bought a JPM. Anyway, I find the RG line very confusing and was wondering if someone could help me identify the following guitar.

It's a 1999 model and judging from the pics I was sent, it appears to be either an RG 570 or a 470. But which one is it? The only difference between the guitars back then seems to be the Edge trem on the 570 versus the Lo-trs trem on the 470. Also, the 570 has a Wizard neck versus the 470's Wizerd II. I'm really only interested in the Edge style trem. Is there a way to find out which is which?

Here are the pics:

Thanks for any and all help!

That's definitely an RG470 with LO TRS II.

Re: Help Identifying RG

It's not a LO-TRS II though, it's a LO-TRS, different arm holder, much better quality.
