Help me figure out what this guitar is! RG 760?

I just got this RG, its awesome, but after doing research i have no idea about its origins, i would think its a 760 because of the HSS and no pickgaurd, but it has dot inlays and all pink dimarzios (i know they could have been swapped out but i am just putting the info out there) Anyone know of 760s with dot inlays or dimarzios?

Also no serial number anywhere, looks to be maybe a circular sticker on the back of the headstock? back plate is the Tilt Joint / Cutaway Heel and it has the original edge trem.

PICS!--Note mac camera flips the image (its not a lefty) and the color is kind of an ice blue, grey blue color, really goes will with the pink dimarzios.

LOL if i put f holes on this it would be a cross between the new and old PGM guitars!d

thanks, you guys rock

RG560, but I was thinking Violet Pearl (which looks more like light blue, at least in the catalogs). Grape Ice is more of a reddish-purple-burgundy color. My RG560 is GI, and it really looks more red to me in person. His is that pale, blue-grey color.

Here's the VP 560 in 1989:


Here's a Grape Ice 560 in the 1990 catalog

ah, i see so its a VP Violet Pearl, i really dig it, i like the pink dimarzios popping out, i just need to change the knobs! they look horrible lol. The trem is in NEW condition, zero hear, it was almost scary. the block is mint, saddles, ect. I took the block out to throw a FloydUpgrades brass big block of course, but when i took the guitar apart to clean it up i was amazed at the condition (other than the paint chips)
