ibanez RG 650: mistery...

today I walked in a guitar shop and saw a never before seen (at least by me) Ibanez...the salesman told me it's an RG-650 (???), it's got an ash body (his words) and it has been made only for the japanese market...

I'll try my best to describe it:

HSH configuration (v7-s1-v8, in fact)
edge bridge
direct mounted pick ups (yummmmm )
mystery neck (could be wizard or ultra) with normal dots inlay, there wasn't any "prestige" word on it
no bindings
light blue/azure transparent finish
mystery body, I'm not really an expert to tell by the figure/weight what wood it is
mystery top, surely not flamed or quilted maple
made in japan

any sage has got info on this?

*** oops maybe I posted it in the wrong forum ***

It's a RG548LBL
Stained ash body
Japanese Wizard II neck
Rosewood fingerboard
V7/S1/V8 pickups
EDGE tremolo

Available in Europe/Asia in 1997 and 1998, great guitar, very unusual and rare.

Heavier than basswood and alder, lighter than maple, mahogany and the like.
