Unhappy How can I define my RG is 470 or 570?

I have a Vintage RG guitar with a old black leather hardcase and a 1994 manual, but anyone can help me to find out that my RG is 470 or 570??

It made in Japan, glossy black in color, rosewood fingerboard 24jumbo frets
3 pickups in a H-S-H(but they hasn't marked v7,v8 or v1,2), The bridge is Floyd-Rose Edge in Chrome and some of hardware in black...
Tuners are Gotoh, No pickguard, Volume and tone knobs in chrome,
with Bubinga reinforced neck and the headstock hasn't the "RG Series" logo..

Should anyone know that my RG is 550 or 570??
I've seen some of 1990-1995 calatlogs..by still can sure my RG is which model..

Thank you very much~

Your guitar is an RG570. It should have the Edge tremolo, bubinga stripe, separate cavity cover for the output jack, and flush mount output jack. It should have a FXXX serial number. --Jason

Yea, it's a 93. $150 is steal on that guitar. You want your money back? lol! --Jason

no~~It is quite worth for a $150 RG570~~^o^ I'm very lucky!
I find it's pickups are sound greater than V7 & V8!
But can I change the edge to low pro edge on 570?
The action of higher notes is a little bit high for my small hand..(I come from Hong Kong)
My RG450LTD's action is very low on high notes~~

Edge and Low Pro Edge tremolos are interchangeable on your guitar. Congrats again on the awesome buy. --Jason
