Need help with model and value please!

Before I drive an hour to go potentially buy this I'd like to try and determine what exactly it is and what would be an appropriate price/value for it. He said it was made in Japan, and the serial number verify's it was a 2001 made in Fuji, but I can't find another RG like this.

No pickguard, purple with black headstock, etc.

Any input appreciated, and don't laugh if this is an easy one, I don't have an extensive Ibanez background lol

It looks like a TI RG470 but the marking on the back of the headstock looks completely different that a 2000 RG470 I looked at.

Looks like an RG570 in Vampire Kiss. I think it was a Guitar Center exclusive run of that color. I can't find verification of that though...

All 570s have edge trems though, right? I though all 470s come with low trs trems....
I was thinking of the vampire kiss color as well.

Re: Need help with model and value please!

Sorry, I didn't see a closeup pic of the trem to see if it was a LoTRSII.
But actually there's no bubinga stripe on the back of the neck. I had a 1999 RG570 and own a '01 RG570 and both have the bubinga super wizard.
Probably an RG470.

You guys are right, it really isn't that close to the titanium ice color. If it comes with the hardcase and is as nice looking in person I'm pretty sure I'd go ahead and pull the trigger on it.

Yeah that looks like an MIJ RG 470, depending on price it'll be worth it. The Japanese made LO-TRS is far far batter than the Korean II variant.

Re: Need help with model and value please!

I can get it for $250-ish with the hard case, sound like a good deal?

Yeah that sounds like a square deal for that guitar.
