Ibanez PGM30 with no headstock logo?

Hey there everyone,
So I am an American living in Japan, and have found that getting some of the more rare Ibanez models is much easier and cheaper here. I got a rare Japan only S/S/H RG550 1987 model in Road Flare Red for example for only 200.00 bucks. (all RG550 models in 1987-1988 sent to the US had a H/S/H config)

Anywho, recently I saw a 1996 Ibanez PGM30 used in fairly good condition that had EVO pickups put in, for about 350.00. Only fishy thing is... There is no "Ibanez" logo on the headstock, and the seller claims it is a rare version that didn't have the logo.

Anyone heard of this? I can't imagine Ibanez deciding to leave off their name on a guitar...

Even if it is just a reproduction headstock (it's still reversed as all the early PGM models are) it still seems like a good deal with the EVO pickups so I might just get it anyway.

Here is a photo of the guitar.
I just looked again at store website, and translated from Japanese it says it was an early production model... thus no logo. Hmm...
