Help me identify this 90's RG

I'm looking for any info I can get on this 1990's Ibanez RG. The previous owner (almost 10 years ago) claimed its model number was RG520IX from what he heard from the previous owner and what he saw printed beneath the neck, but I've not checked this myself. It looks like a JPM, only black and with no inlays at all. Plays like a dream. DiMarzio Air Norton in the neck and a Seymour Duncan Super Distortion in the bridge if I recall correctly, which I installed myself. The serial number claims it's a 1995 FujiGen.

My guess is some kind of non-catalog RG620. Those had the same electronics set-up. Did you remove the neck and check for the neck and body stamps?

Looks like some custom loosely based on RG620 specs. The neck without markers on the front is quite uncommon in RGs.
