Model number of mystery ibanez rg?

Trying to find the model number or approximate value of an ibanez rg I ran across earlier today. I did not take pictures, but I will probably go back and purchase it later today. Price was 140 dollars. Looks like an rg550 from the 80's. Square heel joint with no serial number on it or the headstock. THe color looks like a gunmetal grey, black pickguard with ibanez v1 s1 and v2 pickups. Original edge tremolo system and the tuning keys are labelled as gotoh. The finish on the body is completely shot, but the neck is in great shape with zero cracks and frets look amazing. I know I can make a profit parting it out since it has the edge tremolo system on it. Just curious what you guys think it might be? If I do bite the bullet Ill remove the neck and check for a serial number there. Thanks for your time .

Could be a 550. Did it have a pickgaurd? Seems pretty legit, and even if it is a 450, you could profit some. Imo, i would get it and keep it.

It had a black pickguard. I went back to get it and it was already gone
