Need help identifying model

My mate's selling his RG for quite cheap and I'm quite tempted by the price.
I'm not sure what model it is, and haven't found similar enough pictures of it.

Colour: White (body and headstock)
Fretboard: Rosewood with normal pearl dot inlays
White pearloid fretboard
V pickups in HSH layout (pickups are black)
Gold nut and floyd rose (pretty close to original I think)
Two black strat style knobs

Anybody got any idea? Nearest thing I can think of is 550 except the colours are quite different.

Oops, I mean scratchplate/pickguard.

Dunno if calling it white pearloid sounds odd.

But yes. I should post a picture of it



The white guitar the guy on the right's holiding.

Looks very much like RG450GX.

I guess if I end up buying it off him I'll post up some big pics...

Re: Need help identifying model

Wouldn't a 350DX have the sharktooth inlays? Unless, they put out a dot version also.

Very Nice!

Looks like it yes, is exact same colours and hardware colour (his pickups are V ones too) but as I said his is at least about 8-10 years older, and isn't prestige, and it's more or less a standard floyd rose.

I'd quite like the idea of my mate's guitar, it's from about the same year(s) when I first really started to want an Ibanez and has that old skool-ish hair metal aesthetic.
