Ibanez RG450, 550 or fake

Hi, I've stumbled upon a cheap RG which doesn't come with a model description.

Judging by the serial which is F0006371 and states that it was built in Japan around 2000 and the Jackplate (see pic), it seems to be an RG 550.

What irritates me is, that it's equipped with an Lo TRS, which would mean it should be a RG 450 from 92/93 (made in Japan).

Could anyone of you help me with that?

Many Thanks

It is a 550. That is an original Edge trem. The lo-TRS has stepped sides. The one is straight all the way across. Looks in good shape too although way out of adjustment.

it's a regular RG550 mk2 with the AANJ. It is also a regular Edge Trem as it should be. It's a regular Edge trem, not a Lo TRS. All looks legit.

Great, thank you! I was just irritated by the " licensed by" engraving (see pic), but I'm not really familiar with how an edge should look like!
