Identifying a MIJ RG

Howdy. I came across this RG on craigslist and trying to identify it. From my research, I'm guessing it's an '01 RG570 in Grey Nickel. Looks to have an OE, V7 & V8s. The owner hasn't sent pics of the back of the neck yet so I don't know if it has the bubinga stripe or not. From what I can tell in the pic the serial starts with F01. Am I right or am I right?

There are some white spots under side dots.

Ya, I noticed that but didn't know what to make of them.
Are these last few years 570's comparable in quality to the earlier made ones?

Edit: I just received more pics and those are fret number stickers on the neck...

Re: Identifying a MIJ RG

Well, I picked it up yesterday with OHSC hard case for $250 and it is a 570. The frets were green with tarnish from lack of use, the trem was pulled all the way back into the cavity, the studs adjusted almost all the way out and the neck pickup up so high that playing anywhere over about the 15th fret the strings were touching the pole pieces
There's a couple little dings but nothing major and almost no scratches or fret wear
I spent about 4 hours on it cleaning and setting it up and it's playing pretty sweet now. Btw, this is my first MIJ Ibanez
Less than 10 posts and can't post more images so there's a few more pics here imgur.com/a/bQWvH/all

$250 for THAT? Wow that is amazing value, usually things in similar condition in the UK sell for well over 300 (~$400 or so) and even accounting for tax differences etc that seems like a hell of a deal to me. Welcome to the Ibanez club!

This 570 is worth more than that here, I just got lucky on craigslist. The guy didn't play and had no idea what he had, kind of like the guy I got the pristine RG3XXV from for 150 bucks
