Please shed the light, which model is this?

Hello JEM experts!

After digging in old catalogs i'm still having no answer for this simple question. Which model is depicted here? I bought this RG from second owner. He told me the RG has been designated by original owner as RG 1570X, but first i found no 1570 with piezos (this particular instrument has L.R.Baggs in its double edge trem). According to the serial, it has been built in 2001, bubinga stripe and 3 pieces super thin wizard neck (would match a RG570 of the same year), has apparently basswood body (had no chance to judge myself yet) and galaxy black finish. From what i have seen sofar, RG620X of the same year appears to be close to this one, BUT mine is having an additional button for output control as seen on 2020X (same year again! but with mahogany body, different finish and neck). This RG keeps me puzzled

Re: Please shed the light, which model is this?

does the headstock say "Prestige" or "RG Series"?

No, there is no "prestige" on the headstock and it can't be RG 1620X: the controls layout is different.

I found a way to drop greater resolution images, here we go:

@Fastmerc: excellent! looks like it is RG520X. I probably missed it in the catalogs. But another 520X i just found appears to be exactly the same:
