odd reverse headstock RG with body binding?

reverse headstock, bound rosewood fretboard with sharktooth inlays.
body is a HSS config with what looks like an edge trem, and binding on the top. candy red finish with matching headstock.

this one has me stumped, owner claims its a RG560, but the reverse headstock and sharktooth inlays doesnt match, as does the binding.

one off or limited run perhaps?

EDIT: im thinking its a RGR570 neck, but werent those made in 97 and werent available in candy red? owner says the serial number dates to '90. still doesnt explain a bound 560 config body..

Re: odd reverse headstock RG with binding?

only thing the 760 has in common is the sharktooth inlays and pickup config...no binding or reverse headstock.

the guitar in question seems to have v series single coils..the bridge HB is definately aftermarket. its in quite beat up condition but i have my eye on this one already hehe

Yep, correct. I didn't read it properly.

Sounds awesome either way, enjoy it!

Re: odd reverse headstock RG with binding?

I could be mistaken, but doesn't that look more like a Lo-Pro Edge than an Original Edge?

Re: odd reverse headstock RG with binding?

i was wondering the same...but its hard to tell from the pics and the low resolution.

EDIT: nah its definately an original edge. i took a look at a slightly more closeup pic and confirmed it.

Re: odd reverse headstock RG with binding?

That's definitely an original edge. Psychoshredder is right, it looks like another Jap Domestic model.

Re: odd reverse headstock RG with binding?

i actually now own this exact guitar and would love to know what the story behind it is. and no i am not selling it! i have pulled the neck off and it is stamped hrg-560 on the neck and body and has an original edge tremolo. the v8 has been changed for what i believe is a paf pro with a coil tap. it was bought new in japan apparently and the salesman said it was rare. any ideas
