Arrow Need some help identifying this "limited edition" RG

Hi guys. Recently I stubled upon this beautiful white RG, the owner says it's a limited edition that it is/was only available at events like NAMM. Anyway, lemme put up a pic for you first:



Obviously the biggest clue is the, uhh... "FF" (I think) on the pickguard. And I think those are the standard V pickups, but unfortunately I'm no Ibanez aficionado so I might be wrong. No binding, golden hardware, 24 frets - you know the deal.

Well - I'm clueless and google isn't returning anything useful, so if anybody knows anything, much obliged! Hope I posted this in the right forum

The owner is either lying or a fool. Either way if you buy it for alot you may join him in the latter. Looks korean made. Output jack and cheap trem are dead giveaways.

Edit: Probally a 470 or something like that. Notice the big gap at the selector switch. Like the pickguard is added on as a afterthough.

My guess is an old RG450 with a gold OFR and tuners. He also liked the Foo Fighters so he/she couldn't have been half-bad. Not "limited" though IMO!
Ask the owner for the serial number.

The guitar could be playable but the trem will make u go nuts after many hours with retuneing, ....

So for little money for that ok, else forget this axe.

Re: Need some help identifying this "limited edition" RG

looks like a 470 with pickguard added. note the switch and direct pickup mounting. the odd thing is the trs trem, not a lo-trs model. peculiar. i wouldn't bet that this a namm limited model. it's lower end. where no one can debate that it is "custom" i sincerely doublt it's authenticity as factory.

it's japanese made Rg450 GX WM ( white metallic).
nothing 'limited edition' about it. On 2003 they change the trem into Edge pro with gold finish also.
