Identify the top on my RG3120VV

I heard that they did a limited run in koa. Is this koa or some absurd flame maple?

I think that's maple. Could use better pics, though.

Flame maple although I've seen Koa tops that look real like that.

They did do Koa topped RG3120's although the colour on those
are darker than your guitar which does look VV to me.

Thanks,,,just looks so different than the flame maple on my RG3120DR. In fact, it looks way different than any flame maple topped guitar I've owned. Just a bizarre pattern. It does say RG3120 on the neck/neck pocket when I remove it.

Honestly, that just looks like a regular flame maple top that has faded with age or due to sunlight exposure.

I think it's just that it is so hard to photograph that it would look faded. In person, it's not faded, just that the grain pattern changes so much due to how you view it. I can't seem to get a pic that shows how it looks in person. Anyway, it just seemed the grain pattern bands were wider and curlier than the narrower banding that I'm used to in flame maple tops, so I was curious as to if this could be koa.
