need help IDing an RG :)

hi...i know you guys probably get this alot..but goes..sorry i don't have a pic though..

the serial number is FC5091527
chrome gotoh tuners,maple neck with scarf joint at the 3rd fret,light rosewood fretboard,rounded off neck heel,H/S/H pickup configuration,chrome TRS-505 locking trem (is this a LO-TRS?),black 3-ply pickguard,5way switch and vol/tone controls. dark blue finish as well,black headstock.

im thinking its probably a 370 or 470,but can anyone identify it definitively? and date it as well based on the serial number...

i was told it might not be a *70 though.

can anyone help? thanx!

sounds like a rg270. the 505 is the single locking trem. the new 270s have double lockers, but the older ones had the singles. it has a C in the serial so its a korean Cort made one.
