RG520 (QS) with Sharkfin inlays?

Hi there,

I was just wondering if Ibanez ever made the 520QS with a bound neck/sharkfin inlays? I found an RG for sale with a maple top/double humbucker at a decent price. However i think it might not be the guitars original neck as i've never seen one without the standard dot inlays. The guitar also has a lo pro trem rather than the edge which i believe the QS came with the originally.

It may well be a frankenRG as i can't find anything matching it by googling. Have asked the seller for the Serial # but no reply as of yet.

Does anyone have any ideas?

It's probably an EdgeIII your seeing....not a Lo-Pro.

"shark fin" inlays are for jacksons, ibanez uses "shark tooth"

Great spot. That is indeed the guitar. However the trem appears to be a Lo TRS II which is what had me confused with a Lo Pro. Thanks a lot.

Lo TRS II has to be the worst trem any RG offered.
My titanium ice RG470 had one and it was a nightmare.
