identifying unknown rg model

i have what appears to be a late 80's to early 90's rg 560 two single coils and a humbucker in the bridge. originally came with a v2 in the bridge. it has a 5-way switch but the weird thing is, it has 1 volume and 2 tone controls. most 560's i have seen only came with 1 volume and 1 tone. deep purple color with maple neck w/ maple fretboard. floyd rose locking trem. i cant find a serial number or a model number on the guitar anywhere. nothing but ibanez written on the headstock. thanks for any info.

Re: identifying unknown rg model

get some posts in and then post a picture, or link up to a picture site.

Could the third pot be a customization by previous owner?

Dude, they're trying to help you--it's only been 24 hours. Follow the advice and get 10 posts so you can post pictures. We can't tell you what it is without seeing it.

Re: identifying unknown rg model

How does the addition of an extra pot look "factory?" All you have to do is drill one hole and add the pot.

thats what i thought also but i couldnt find one with 2 tone pots tho. it plays great and probably the only guitar in my collection that i wouldnt get rid of. i was just curious to what model it was. i replaced the v2 in the bridge with a dimarzio dp 100 super distortion and now i want to replace the neck pickup. what would be a good replacement?
