It's RG 5000.
Same thing with RG 550, but Special run for Japanese market.
Check out the J custom fan site for the flyer.

There's also a Purple Neon version with the color matched dots--I just missed it on eBay last year.

Re: NGD : RG 5000



i have a long time friend and he invited me to see him playing in a pub, sometime ago.
I said, yeah bro are you still playing with that ugly Epiphone just yet?
Then he said:

"no man, unafortunately i had to sell my beloved Epi.
But i've got a chance to buy a strange cheapo red Ibby.
I hate those cheap japanese crap, sounds like plastic!"


.
.
.

When the band get on the stage, i saw this and my jaw dropped:










Long story short, it was one and a half year ago, and he still own the Ibby and loves it.
