Modded? Could've had a surface mount TRS..... that would have been an easy retrofit...

But it looks like a Prestige to me, and it's MIJ. I can't see it being fitted with a TRS. My first guess is it's an Ikebe special or something.

hm, don't know, IIRC Prestiges have small dots. those look like the ugly huge dots from the pre-2003 era. and about the top-mounted TRS... never seen one. the only top-mounted trems RGs i've seen are those from the pre-RG era, i.e. before the commonly known RG design came out (1986) and just after the Roadstars. those had top-mounted Edge trem, like the one below (RG410CI):

Re: Which rg is this?

It's either a special order as Dee said, or a custom made body with an original Ibanez neck. It can also bee a moded body. Never seen anything like it.

I dont quite get the colour. Is it a very dark transulcent finish??

Yes, you are probably right, Nuno. I thought some earlier Prestige RG's had larger dots? Maybe I'm imagining things...

Makes it look even more like an Ikebe special.

RG 621 (the first time round) the store "Percy Priors" in the UK sold them for a while in the mid 90s.
