Help Identifying some RG

Alright everyone, I'm back with another guitar that I need help identifying. A Relative might be sending me a guitar that he doesn't use very often. Since he doesn't play guitar. The neck of the guitar says;
"EX350
C305073"
I'm pretty sure that's the headstock and not what's stamped on the back of the neck at the neck joint.
Anyway, he said he got the guitar around 2000, so that would eliminate an RG350M and several other 350 models. It's also blue, which I couldn't find in any of the 350s. I'm probably just not looking hard enough though. It has Sharktooth inlays and a rosewood fretboard, or it at least looks like it does.
Enough talk, here are the pictures of the guitar.




Sorry about the quality of the photos. Trust me, if I could get better ones, I would. If anybody needs anymore photos I could try to get them, but no promises.

Thanks in Advance!!

Re: Help Identifying some RG

It's not an RG. Like it says, it's an EX350.

He may have received it in 2000, but I don't think they were still making them at that point. Either way--it is an EX350. The model # stamp is usually a dead giveaway.

Re: Help Identifying some RG

I figured it was an EX350, but I couldn't find this a picture of this guitar. I know you could probably find a picture if you wanted to. So would you be so kind as to find me a picture of one of these new? or just in a catalog?

And The only reason I had thought it was an RG of sorts was because there is a guitar called "RG 350EX"

Again, Thanks.

EDIT: Any idea when this guitar was made? Looking at the serial number, I would guess '93. I could be wrong though, it seems like an older ibanez guitar. It doesn't look like you could kill someone with the horns on it.

Just for reference, it's possible to do your own research--catalogs are digitally available at Ibanez.com
Just click CATALOGS at the bottom.

Re: Help Identifying some RG

Out of curiosity, are EX350's good guitars? Are they basically an RG550 with an all access neck joint and Triangle inlays?

Far from them! These were low-end guitars.

They just might be. I didn't mean they were bottom of the barrel, just lower-end and not up to the level as the RG500 series as asked.
