Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

I'm looking at this guitar in my area, but it's rather perplexing.

Listed as an 'RG-7', there's a scrupulous lack of information considering the price... seems really steep.

But then there's the DNA neck, the neon green knobs and dimarzio pickups which would be reminiscent of a Uv7, but are these just cosmetic customizations on an otherwise ordinary RG?

Does anyone know what this actually is and what a fair price on it might be?
I was thinking 1300 tops, considering that RG7620s and RG7421s go for even as cheap as 350...

thanks for any feedback, I'm going to check it out tomorrow and would love a price estimate or just any info on it whatsoever!

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

It's a 76 or a 7420 that has the wrong control cover on it and why no trem cover is on it, and the trem is some Floyd unit that [from the pics anyway] looks like it will not pullup or you'll drive the lockdown screws into the top, the way it's currently intonated anyway.

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

That's what I was thinking, and true, those lockdown screws are in a precarious position indeed. Looks like it might need a bit of work, but I think it was a standard RG76 or 421 which was customized by Livewire.... I know this is always a tough call over the web, but what would you price something like this at?

edit: by control cover do you mean pickguard? :3 not sure what a control cover is

I would avoid it completely. You never know what stage of his addiction he built that guitar.

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

Well at this point it's being sold by a shop, but for $1595.... you'd think they're selling a Uv7 or something, however I highly doubt it's of that caliber. I think I'll still go and check it out, but now I'm way more wary of it than I already was. Thanks for the info!

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

That trem route looks sketchy IMO.
Like Rich said - avoid!

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

Went and checked it out today, nuthin but perfume on a pig. :P

sure it looks nice and I appreciate the Fujigen craftsmanship, but it's still an entry level to intermediate guitar priced at a professional get up.

Re: Mystery RG - Help me Identify!

I disagree with Rich, that is a genuine 7 string DNA if I ever saw one! Rich just wants it for himself!

Just kidding, don't buy it, whatever it is.
