Smile Help identifying this Rg550?

.,-}So, I checked the serial number and it's supposed to be a 2004 guitar made in Korea's Peerles plant. However below the serial there is "custom shop humbucker designed" which I don't know what it means, besides the seller says this guitar was made somewhere between 94 and 97 in Japan.

I'd appreciate if anyone can help me to identify it precisely and give me all the possible data about this lady. I also have the feeling it may be fake or the neck has been changed.

Thanks beforehand

The RG550 and line under the serial number have been added. It is not a 550, I'd bet more 350DX.

The CE marking is also fake. That is not even a legit Ibanez, its counterfeit

The string retainer seems to be at wrong position... it can be a counterfeit indeed.

It's a real Ibanez, that's an EP2 trem. The pickguard is one of those chinese off ebay, and the markings on the back of the neck above and below the serial number are faked additions.
