Pls help identify ibz guitar


Please help identify this guitar:

According to serial No, manufactured in Japan in 2002. Seller told me it was a 550 LTD bought in Japan. Seller has good rep so no reason to doubt him.

Pickups V8 S1 V7. Mirror scratchplate. Bound fretboard.

I am unsure about the shark's tooth fret markers though, not found in catalogue for that year.

Any ideas?

Re: Pls help identify ibz guitar

your seller is a scum.

the tremolo is not Lo pro edge, where RG 550 LTD should have one.

as far for the color, I never found 550LTD with this color.

if you look at the pickguard, there are 2 un-screw holes in the body, it makes me think that the pickguard and everything on it is indeed from 550 LTd. but body and nec... ? no.
edit : RG 450 LTD also coming with mirror pickguard and V8-S1-V7 combo, so it could be original.

I don't remember in 2002 , we still have 550 LTD.
we have 450 LTD instead.

so my best bet , it is RG 450 LTD.
