the japanese rg470's are awesome- but it has that crappy trem (bar a very odd model). Mine is a 2000 model by the way, and it's MIJ.
the other thing to remember is, if it IS a japanese model (with lo-trs, not lo-trs II), you need to drill the holes for the trem a little bigger. On mine, they're about 8mm stock, while the Gotoh studs of the trem I bought are about 11mm. I think the OFR studs are a similar size to the Gotoh ones.
Oh, and you'd need a pickup change too, but the trem is the killer.
