NGD mismatch

I was doing my normal pawnshop rounds and I see this Ibanez hanging on the wall. At first glance I could tell something wasn't right.

Locking nut on a non locking tremolo. I investigate a little further and I find this.

Square heel body with an AANJ neck. I knew instantly it was a 550-570 neck because of the bubinga stripe and I've been wanting a maple boarded neck for a while. The price for the whole guitar was less than what a loaded neck goes for on the big auction site so I couldn't resist, even knowing there were 4 extra holes in the heel of the neck.

Upon further inspection:

there is a crack in one of the square heel mounting holes probably from not being predrilled when the neck was attached(lower left in this pic). It is about 1/4" long but looks like a pretty easy fix and it shouldn't be as stressed when the neck is attached to a proper body. I've got a spare 570 body that I have been itching to use so that works out great.

On to the body. I tried to get a good pic but it didn't show but the neck pocket is stamped Aug 97. I'm fairly certain this was a low end rg of some type given the bridge, build date and square heel but I have no idea what neck goes with it. It is in too good shape for me to get rid of and who couldn't use an extra beater. Any ideas as to what it is?

It's an RG170 body.

That's what I'd call a frankenbanez.
