Looks like a heavily-modified RG-570. *

Enjoy the guitar!

Hmmm... interesting. Pyramid inlays and a golden-ish top.

Does Kevan know?

I think "Customized RG" would have been a more accurate description... Looks nice though - congrats! :-)

cheers guys...the guitar plays really well actually...neck feels more like a jem than the RG neck..
so is it a RG540 then?..do u think its the original finish?...or has it been stripped?

now this is the funny thing..it has evolution on the bridge..but its the neck model..i wonder why the previous owner did that,,..seymour quarter pounder in the middle...annnnndd ibanez qm 2 on the neck which is odd again cause its designed for the bridge
