Iron Label RG model number issue, please help

Hi everyone, this is my 1st post on the forum, maybe you guys can help me out.
I own an RG1570 and currently I'm looking to expand my Ibanez collection.

I'm looking at a pretty good deal on a RGIR20E (495$) on ebay, the guy claims it's refurbished and posted some pictures and the guitar looks great. One thing baffles me, on one of the images (on the back of the headstock) the model number is RGTS20E. Shouldn't it say RGIR20E? Is this a scam or is it legit?

Sorry I can't post the image but the system won't let me since my post count is low.

httpx://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/5/5/2/6/9/0/webimg/678155226_o.jpg

If anyone is interested in the image just remove the x from the httpx link above.

Thanks for the help.

Mystery solved!
I talked to the guy and he says that's the reason the guitar was refurbished. Wrong labeling.

Thanks

YMMV, but for me... that'd raise more red flags than my old soviet motherland ever had.

Or China has today, for that matter... "wrong labeling" is just soooo common on the Chinese Fibsons of today. Genuin Amreican Quanlity, anyone?
