I think the RG450LTDs had Sharktooth inlays.

Yes, it is the later version which has Sharktooth inlays.
After some searching, this RG most probably is RG450LTD1 CB.
Hope it helps

I was recently searching info about the model of my guitar and talk to someone who knows more ibanez models, he said it was not a rg450dx because the DX series have Sharktooth inlays, and probably my guitar is a rg450ltd. Models 1999 and 2000 have dot inlays. In the Ibanez official website I not find this model and mine. Sorry for my English!
My Ibanez has a Lo-Trs, Gotoh tuners, and mirrored pickguard. It's made in Fujigen, in 1999.
If someone have more info about this guitar (woods, mics, whatever) please comment here o send me a message!
Thanxs!

well, some japanese models ibanez are not posted in the official websites and some of them are restricted in some market only. So, it is hard to identify certain type of ibanez. Anyway, most japan rg are made in basswood and fitted with V series pickup (V7,S1,V8 or V6,RTS,V6).

Thank you Mr. X. Just one more question (like we say "una más, y no jodemos más"): Is there any possibility to differentiate the V6 from V7/V8 humbuckers, and S1 from RTS? how I know what mics have my guitar?
Thank you again, I'm clearing my doubts.

They are clearly labeled on the pickups. (image hijacked )





This guitar obviously has a replacement bridge pickup, and probably a different neck pickup if it came with V7/V8 setup.

Yes, but the Rg models circa 2001-2002, I think, are labeled on the pickups. 1999 or 2000 models aren`t, my humbuckers just had a "V" written with permanent on the back of the pup. And each one just got 2 conductors, not 4 like the picture. What a mess!
Thank you for comment!
