RG 450 MIJ 2009??

Hello good folks of Jemsite, i'm a long lime "lurker" on this forum and a first time poster,

latly, i'm really into purchasing an RG series guitar, and have stumbled upon an RG 450, MIJ with TRS-a-like Trem, which was also covered in the following thread:

the salesguy in the store didn't know nothing about it, except it's MIJ, and it comes in a box, not a case, nada.

now, my questions to you are:
what's that trem? TRS? or TRS II? (if it's a TRS II im defenetly not getting that), it has a TRS II style screw-on bar, but it doesnt even say TRS, or anything, it just says "Ibanez", and it's chromed like most TRS II

optional pricing for this guitar( he's trying to sell it to me for almost 815USD which is kinda pricey next to the 1st-in-line 1570 1150USD)

pickups? anything? the thread mentioned before is says they are V's, but i greatly doubt that.

the guitar felt good in my hands, plays well, neck has a Prestige feeling to it, but without the finishing touches

i'd greatly appreciate any info on this piece, and, pardon my English(not from a native English speaking country)

Re: RG 450 MIJ 2009??

about the tremo...I'm not sure.
About the pickups.. I'm sure it's V6F. V6F is the cheapest pickup you can find on any cheap-mid level MIJ Ibanez.
the price USd 815..? I don;t know where your location and custom taxes in your country but.. in my country it's only about USD 500 something.

Re: RG 450 MIJ 2009??

thank's there psychoshredder for the cost eval, it's REALLY helpful!

and i actually answered most my other questions just browsing the forums for the last hour or so,

info on this guitar:

RG 450, MIJ,
Trem is ILT1 (crap TRS II like trem,) but perhaps it's Jap made so it's supposed to be.... decent?
pup's are stated only as "Ibanez new and Original"
here's the link to the "good" pictures of the guitar (as also stated in the link above)

Re: RG 450 MIJ 2009??

thats a LT1 tremolo it cames on the GRG series guitars, but the main question is why is it made in japan??? in 2009 all the GIO guitars that had tremolo came with the edge3 tremolo and all of them were made in korea, indonesia or china... that is one wierd model and i bet is a limited series guitar... like the ones that ibanez made in late 90's... you know the gold finish 470 and 450 but came with trs's...
