Help me ID this guitar with just a description

I struck a great deal on an Ibanez and need some info on it. The seller says it's a RG 520, but I'm not so sure. So, here's the description: White body with white pickguard. H/S/H pickup combo, maple neck, rosewood board, Edge Trem. The pup's have been changed to PAF Pro's and the single to Blue Velvets. Also, it has an AANJ.

Thanx, Peter

Well, it could be an RG520, but if it is then it's a highly modified one

The HSH pickup combo in a pickguard which is the tell tale sign when dealing with RGs, in conjunction with an edge trem suggests it's an RG550, but to the best of my knowledge the 550 was never available with an AANJ in white, and especially not with a rosewood board. It could even be something like an RG350, or 450 with the trem changed to an edge, or just plain mistaken

In truth it doesn't match exactly any RG I know, or can find in my catalogues. I'd approach this one with care !!!

Turns out the guitar is a RG 250DX. Oh well, I guess it's pretty easy to swap the first two numbers. I guess I won't really need it.

AANJ - all access neck joint. The newer rounded heel as opposed to the old Strat style heel.
