Smile Need help identifying this Ibanez RG

I've found this guitar used for 400$ which I though is a great price for the guitar. The seller says that the guitar has the Edge Pro trem on it, but to me it looks nothing like an Edge Pro. The seller is says that the model is an Ibanez RG370, but I'm not sure, so I wonder if any of you guys can recognize this guitar and tell me which model it is and also what trem this guitar comes with.

Here's a close up on the trem - I'm not able to post links yet, sorry :-( Replace the "(DOT)" with a "."

And the guitar

Re: Need help identifying this Ibanez RG

I'd say it's an RG470 with lo-TRS trem

I don't think that RG3xx comes with V7/V8 pickups, but I can be wrong

a Floyd rose is a direct replacement for the lo-trs whammy bar!!
even better if you replace the block with floyd upgrade big block, it's cheap and improve the tonal response.

its a suggestion, i'm not a seller but a user!!

hope it help

If its a Japanese made RG470 with the V series pickups then its got a LO-TRS or Edge Pro. Don't confuse the Japanese made LO-TRS with the crappy Korean made LO-TRS II. The Japanese made bridge is actually a decent one, so it should be perfectly fine.

LP is right. That's a 98-02 Fuji made RG470 with the MUCH better Lo-TRS. These are great guitars. The LO-TRS is stable and reliable.
