Help with rg517

Hey, I was hoping someone in here could help me out. I'm very interested in these rg570s I see on ebay occasionally. They have the same pickup config as a regular 570, however they are all sparkle colored. Someone told me that these are actually rg517's but that's about all the info I seem to be able to gather about these things. I checked the Ibanez register and can't find any pictures of these sparkle guitars anywhere. Is there anyone that can help me figure out exactly what these guitars are, when they were available, and perhaps some pictures of the different colors. If anyone has a catalogue scan with these models it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

They might've been called RG517s in Europe, but they were still listed as an RG570 in the USA.

I owned a Blue metalflake one for about a year, aside from the finish it was the same as any other recent RG570.
