Help me ID...RG570 Flame Top???

I attached some pics. I just came across this and I'm trying to figure out what it is exactly. The RG570's that I have seen had gold hardware and only came in blue and amberburst. This looks to have an Edge Pro and a Wizard neck, but it has Korean pickups. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyone have any ideas?


Thanks,

Chuck

That is a Lo Pro bridge...

Could be a partscaster, or JP market. I would be curious to see what is stamped in the neck pocket.

That's what I meant to write-Edge Lo Pro. That's Japanese, right?

Yep, the Lo Pro is my personal favorite of the Ibanez tremolos.

Cool. I can't even find a translucent black finish for an RG in an Ibanez catalog. I talked to a friend of mine who was a sales manager for over 10 years at a pretty big Ibanez dealer and he seems to think it's a 'one off' or something.

Actually, I did a little bit more research and found out that the QM (Quantum) pick ups were stock on some of the Japanese S guitars...for what that's worth
