Thanks for the reply Alaskabat, I can post a pic, but as I said it is identical in every way to the pic at the start of the thread. Natural finish, gold coloured hardware, original edge trem. One thing I have noticed is the jack is recessed into the body and not flush mounted with some kind of scratch plate round it, don't know if this is significant? Serial on the back of the headstock is F513569, which leads me to believe it is a '95 model.
I'm just really trying to find out if it is what I think it is and not what the shop said, and if it is a RG547AH what it is worth. I believe they also made a root beer colour of this model, but the one I have is the natural ash and in very nice condition for age.
